Rufus currently lives behind a garage door in our yard. There was a garage when we bought the house, but it was unsafe and unsightly, so we tore it down, and planned to turn it into a pretty garden. Until we decided to fill it with vintage Volkswagen instead.
The garage door is unwieldy, and Rufus, though under a cover, is exposed to the elements, so we asked my parents to help us build a carport.
First job was taking the old garage door and pillars down:
And breaking up the block work so it could go in the boot of the car to the tip:
Then it was time to dig holes for the new wooden supports:
And make more rubble in the process:
The essentials must always be covered though:

Other brands of concrete are available:
Fancy a brew?

Bye bye, smiley:
