    Mr Binmore said: ‘It was a 40th birthday present to my wife.

    ‘She’s always wanted a space of her own to write, she has written several short stories and is always working on her next story.

    ‘She works full time for the NHS and we have two young boys so having a quiet space which is hers is very calming.

    ‘It was a lovely project with my father and my son Casey helping as well.

    ‘Casey (his eldest son) did the majority of the painting outside and enjoyed working with me and grandad.

    ‘It’s quite small but it really does work quite well.
