I will not waffle on for too long - as there are lots of photos to upload, taken over several days. The kitchen arrived yesterday and the carpenters are working late every night to get it installed (they were here until 8.15 pm yesterday). Doors are hung and door handles put on. The majority of the tiling and painting is finished. The tiler starts on the complicated hall floor today - old quarry tiles in a chequer pattern. It won't be long before the upstairs is ready for the carpet - and then we can start moving boxes over from our rented house across the road (I have been packing for a while).
The hot tub is brilliant. Very relaxing for me and definitely eases my stiffness/pain. It is more awkward having to walk across the road to use it - and then having to come back here to have a shower. Once we have moved in, I will be using it most days.
The tree at the front of the house has been chopped down,
letting in a lot more light.
The view from the kitchen patio doors -
a bit of landscaping!
The old - and very thick - quarry tiles
(taken up from the dining room floor).
The painter likes to be tidy!
The bath installed.
The fancy LED mirror in the main bathroom.
The back door - with new external light.
Double doors to the dining room.
The kitchen - roughly laid out where it will be going.
A close-up of the back kitchen wall - with hob
and drawers underneath - and the tall oven units.
