House Progress

Since I last wrote about the renovation things have been steaming along at full speed. Seriously its beginning to actually look like a house rather a building site. The house has been a flurry on workmen coming in and out.  The Kitchen is nearly done and so is the Bathroom they just need finishing touches like grouting and flooring before they are ready to be finished.

The Cul-de-sac has been filled with skips and vans as a house across the way is also being renovated so we must be driving the neighbours up the wall. 

The walls have been insulated this week, by a man doing slight acrobatics with a wall injector, and the loft will be done at some point next week, then laid so we can use the loft as storage.

Despite all the progress there is still a long way to go, the wood burner isn't in, light fixtures, decorating, flooring, finishing touches and dressing still needs to be done. It is so exciting to bring this house back to life, it has metamorphosed from the 1970's atrocity into a modern family home. Its sort of boggling to be doing a modern project after living in period properties always so its been a very different build from anything any of us have done before. Thats both exciting and nerve racking.
