It has taken four days, about three hours each day, but the ten tonnes of topsoil are now in the back garden.
We can now walk up to the front door and see it in all its glory.
Darren spent a lot of time today finishing off the very top of the cladding, and that involved us moving the scaffold tower backwards and forwards many times.
Meanwhile I have found a home for all of the soil and put up some temporary little walls to keep it in place.
I am planning on building a pond in the semi circle shape in this photo...
.... but at the moment it is going to have to be a soil storage area.
However, starting from tomorrow our focus will be on the inside of the house.
