Dispensary Hut Completed

The finished dispensing hut in the corner of the garden, as viewed from my office.

Hut at Distance 2

My fabulously talented son, Habib has done me proud in building this working space for me.

Room for all my approximately 150 stock tinctures (two deep in this cabinet) – each one macerated from a different species of herb. You can see more in progress on top of the cabinet.

Interior 1

other supplies and the dispensing bench which was repurposed from our old kitchen in Leeds – 100% beech.

Interior 3

Power and light, and very comfortable to work in, even at this time of year because walls are well insulated.


Thank you Habib
