After much discussion, measuring up, marking which planks will stay (and go), sucking of teeth, visits to woodyards and costing up the options, the larch has been ordered! We're assured that it will be delivered to Woodbridge ‘soon’.
True to their word, a call from Somerscales, Grimsby, confirm delivery of the planks early in October. At 11am, the lorry arrived with an understanding and helpful driver. Despite the lack of available assistance, the wood was offloaded and all sticked up before dark!
