And the Hill glows golden brown..

Slow and steady,, well less of the steady nowadays as I seem to be more wobbly.. Without beer...
Did the sides for the workshop, its never going to be a deep building due to its position, and I made the back, which yes I have, scribed in all the brickwork, even though in its finished position you carnt see it, who knows where it might move to over time, is my thinking.

That's an unusual gable detail - which I know you will have faithfully reproduced from somewhere. A bit of a northern thing?
