Another busy week. The electrician has nearly finished - and the electrics will be on, so that the boiler can be fired up on Monday when the oil delivery has arrived. We have decided on floor tile layout in the main bathroom, guest shower room and laundry room, as the tiler is on site next week. Also the decorator will be starting to paint. Most of the bathroom fittings have been ordered and some have already arrived. The kitchen design is finalised. Our next job is internal doors and the wooden flooring.
(Also - some of the builders have escaped over to our cottage, which is just up the road. They have started on the extension, and a large JCB was digging all day yesterday. It is wonderful to have our 2nd project underway.)
Here are just some of the photos I took yesterday and today. The house really seems like a home now - and I didn't want to leave this morning. It was so sunny inside - and already feels warmer with all the insulation in the floors. Not long now!
More drainage pipes out in the garden.
The new electrics box in the internal porch next to the kitchen.
The wall-mounted boiler - we are amazed
that something so small can heat the whole house!
A view from the boiler room out through
the hot tub room.
The main bathroom. Shower tray installed.
Floor tiles laid out, as we decided how we
wanted them to be placed.
Looking out of the first floor laundry room (again,
we were laying out the floor tiles) into the stairway.
My craft room - with skirting going in, and
connections hanging down for the lights
(lots of them!).
An arty shot - looking down the stairs from
outside the main bedroom.
The oil tank in its new home.
You can see why this house was built here -
the view from the front is amazing (no other
buildings, just fields).
