At long last, the granny Flat has a verandah AND railings…and my parents can get OUT without having to trapse through our house! See the steps on the right:

Granny Flat Verandah

They were stuck for a while as we there was a bit of a wait to get the verandah done, including WEEKS of wet weather! We still have some painting to do BUT now they have a nice cosy new granny flat overlooking farmland….very peaceful!

Can you see the space/gap….under the solar hot water system?…Well that is the breezeway seperating their granny flat from our house. Now if only MY new bedroom were finished, then I would be SINGING! Oh well….patience is a virtue??
