So Close to Completion

The building work on the Happy House is very nearly complete. The seating is being built in the reception ready for us to to put cushions on, covered with the material bought from Swatchbox at a very reasonable price to match the curtains that they are donating for all the Happy House windows.

The garden in the courtyard is looking lovely. The electrician has nearly finished, the doors and windows are almost complete and the painters are on the last lap. It has cost more than we anticipated to finish but it is gorgeous, as my Dad used to say 'We can't spoil the ship for a hapeth of tar! ' When the container arrives and we can put the beds into the rooms, and all the other items that have been donated into their place, I feel that we will be breathing life into this beautiful building ready for the children to come 'home'
