Gazebo / Quiosko Guttering

So I set to, to re-align the guttering on the Gazebo, or as it is called here a Quiosko, and I couldn\’t even get that right, for five plus years I was spelling it Kiosko!

In October, I decided we needed a carport, not so much for the rain, but to give the cars aContinue reading “Time to bring you up to date!”
