On Saturday we went looking for outdoor furniture for the patio area of Dunkineely. I am so excited to think we are near enough to completion to start thinking about the outside areas. Anyway, I had been told of a man near Letterkenny who makes strong wooden furniture so took a trip to his place.

When we got there we discovered that not only does he make furniture but he makes trellis and suchlike to finish off the garden or patio. His garden has various displays he made up and I fell in love with a great trellised area with honeysuckle growing up it - imagine the lovely scent on a summers evening? I could and decided I want that!

He will also make the furniture any size his customer needs which is great for us because the standard bench table seats 6 whereas we need it to seat 10 to 12 for enough space for both our family when visiting and also for our future guests to have space to dine al fresco too. The patio area measures 17' x 17' so that should give us ample space.

I am going to email him photos of the patio today and tell him what I want for our area and he will make out a plan for approval, and the price being right, we will roll with it immediately.

And once that is all in place, the bbq is built, the warmer evenings to arrive and we're ready for summer bbqs and long, lazy evenings sipping cool wine under the honeysuckle. Ahhhh ...
