I’ve still not unpacked and the barn is littered with cardboard boxes.  There are books in a lot of the boxes so we’ve just collected the most enormous bookcase from very close by. I think there will be 10mm clearance to the ceiling to allow us to stand the bookcase up in the study.

Unfortunately we found there is not enough clearance through the doors from the barn so we’ve invited some big strong lads over to dinner who will hopefully help take it the longer route through the front door.  The photo is an artist impression of how it might have looked had we collected the bookcase on the roof of a Renault.


I thought there would be 10mm clearance to the roof. The bookcase just brushed the ceiling when we stood it up.
