One person’s downsizing is another person’s guest suite.
Our very good friends and inspirationalists at Acorn Ponds are downsizing.
So, as they have done in the past – with pigs, windows, and miscellaneous bits (but thankfully not geese) they today moved their home to Gribin Isaf.
When your mobile home has not been mobilised for a number of years there is always a worry if the wheels will still turn:
and will that turntable still rotate
A tight squeeze out through the hedges at Acorn Ponds
Reversing an articulated chassis onto a low-loader can have its tricky moments
But eventually all is secure
and the home is leaving England
to arrive in Wales
The low-loader will only go as far as the village
so we wait for the highly skilled services of Steve Gittins
who soon gets connected
Unloading (forwards) as less traumatic than loading in reverse
and the journey continues up the road
down the lane
through the farm for general admiration
across the field
through the gates
passing through a specially prepared gap in the hedge
a little bit of toing and froing
and the van is settles on its spot
commanding the top of the meadow
with a view of the hen run – and beyond
