The great unveiling of the Danyfan Railway Carriage

It’s not finished, but soon will be! After sitting in our field looking a bit forlorn for the last year or so we thought it was about time. Lloyd has been doing most of it for us. He’s a boat builder really, and he’s brilliant.

I finished the painting today. It’s a similar colour to the hall of the house – bright green.  Rosie’s been loving helping…

I got some stuff from the McCartneys auction last month – a bed, little wardrobe, couple of chairs.  The bed is now in!

The compost loo is about 7 metres from the carriage.  It’s in an elevated shed, and Lloyd built a little shower/ sink room next door.

There will be hot showers powered by a special gas heater thing. There’s a Belfast sink which was in my grandparents’ field, and it’s resting on shelves which Lloyd made from wood from a larch tree that we cut down last year.

Getting turf put down next week, and then it’s pretty much done. Just need to furnish it.
