More or less ten weeks in and it’s looking good. All the plastering is done, we have two working loos, two rooms are totally ready to paint, funnily enough I’m not so excited about that now it’s actually come time to go for it! Downstairs has lots of developments, the ensuite looks great, just need to finalise which shower to go for now, the cupboard is going to be the best ever storage space for this’n’that so I can have a beautifully uncluttered home (and a chronic cupboard). Today I was quite fancying the ensuite for a wee hidey hole study type room but I think we’ll go with the original plan.
We have shown off our regeneration to numerous people today, the house has been going like a fair this afternoon, great fun with about 13 kids dotting about in total making iPad films in the garden. Brilliant,that’s what this house should be about. Tea was the order of the day with the visitors and I reckon I had about 8 cups in amongst the comings and goings, lucky we now have two loos.
The bungalow has been super busy again today, the plasterers have made it down the stairs and finished the ‘join’ to the hall really well and the bathroom has been skimmed too. The dormers have been undercoated outside and prepped inside. The frame is in for the ensuite door and there is a wall between the new ensuite and the bedroom cupboard. Electrical stuff has been going on too. That’s quite a lot if you ask me.
The sun has been shining all afternoon and, though it is a bit chilly out of the rays, I have removed the guinea hutch from its winter home to allow the summer-house to be used again. I emptied it, swept out all the hay and debris, put the furniture back in and within 5 minutes my boys and their pal had taken up residence. Typical. It was good to see them outside playing for hours on end I must admit, about time too. This could be spring coming back to cheer us all up a bit. The boys insisted on eating their tea in the summer-house, brilliant, you can tell they’re desperate for good weather too.
