The beautiful cast iron range that Chris Genever gave me has had a really lovely upgrade. We moved it forward and have extended and corbled the brickwork on both sides. This gave us a far greater surface area which we tiled with left over tiles from a previous greenhouse project.
There were however complaints about the architect!! Having asked Chris if could do some corbelling, I then promptly forgot and he carried on building upwards. The following morning, the architect still hadn't noticed her mistake and 2 courses had be knocked off and rebuilt!! In trouble again!!
Chris's brickwork looks so lovely and all carefully measured to accommodate too many constraints and variables in heights, surfaces, curves, materials, thicknesses etc. etc. to even mention! Yet another example of a real craftsman making his amazing skills look so very easy.
Whilst I'll probably use the work surfaces for plants and kitchenalia kindly donated by friends, there's absolutely nothing to prevent us from using it for its original and intended purpose and lighting a fire in it! You see - it really is an outdoor kitchen and not far to go for herbs!!!
