I think we’ve just reached that stage of a house build where people start panicking about their builders walking out on them – basically we have no roof!
Our hall has now widened to accommodate the staircase and our old bedroom and sitting room are one new room. Standing in what was the old sitting room, it seems incredible that it ever accommodated all our furniture, but footprints of houses are funny things, you look at a room with no ceiling, no plaster and no furniture and it looks small, these rooms will grow again as the house changes.
Behind that black tarpaulin in the bottom photo are a set of double glass doors where currently (temporarily) my desk is. When the builders realised I spent a lot of the day sitting at my desk they suddenly got very concerned about the glass in the doors being damaged and covered it up to “protect” it. You’ll note that they don’t appear as concerned about the doors that lead to the outside!
We also had an extraordinary bit of luck a couple of weeks ago that I’ve being meaning to tell you about. I entered a competition for a bathroom size electric underfloor heating system on the facebook page of Fit My Wood Floor. I couldn’t believe it when they contacted me to say we’d actually won! The heating system will now go in our new en-suite, I’m looking forward to toasty toes in the morning!
