Gaining access to the back garden

I'm a little behind on my blog posts recently as we've both been busy working and not finding time to write, but with the weather wet and miserable outside I thought I would take the time to update the blog with the house progress. 

Now that the footpath alongside the garage has finally been cleared it gives us the opportunity to gain access to the back garden. With the help of a very dear friend who was visiting us all the way from Essex we used his muscle to knock down the brick wall that blocks up the beautiful brick archway.

Finally after several hours of smashing the bricks away we now have gained the original access back to our home. Next job is to dig out the raised bed and remove the wall around it.

Big thanks to Brian for all your help on our little Cornish home renovation.
