Extension Update

A House!

There have been changes, but I will admit I am finding it hard going with the kids off and living amongst the mess and work.

We have had yet more set backs. Something to do with existing lintels, or lack of them above the windows. This has delayed us further and cost yet more, but hey ho I am keeping my eyes fixed on the end result! The kitchen is due to go in mid September - is it too soon to start counting the days?

On a positive note we do have:


A door or two

Rendered walls

BUT ......   we also have a lot of this

and this

and lots of this -  coming off the house every day!

 And we don't have a roof...yet.

But I will have a kitchen in this room.

Looking from back to front

We are really pleased with the way the builders work and the quality of what they have done. It is just with the kids off and space being limited it is a bit of a tricky time. I think I can say , weather dependent  I am looking forward to a bit of camping and getting away this year!
