The Sand Saga!

The week before last was a stressful one …. this arrived with a small team of guys to sandblast our stone and red brick walls!

The wagon arrives early morning to get started

I just didn’t realise how much sand there would be!

Or how dusty it would be!

Patch tests had to be done first to make sure that the right pressure was used.

Once I agreed on the right finish then the rest of the walls could be blasted, all of them had to be done in a day really so as not to be too disruptive to our neighbours!

There was far more sand and dust than I had expected and as a result I ended up with a rather large cleaning bill!

However, I hope you all agree that this was worth it … the final results are amazing I think, I am so excited (more sneaky peeks to follow in another blog post next week).

This is one of the walls when they’d finished – what do you think?
