And the frontroom;
We are blocking up the horrible double doors that were here when we moved in and filling the new wall with bookcasing;
We are going to open up under the stairs for access and to make the whole downstairs a more usable family space. I am
shitting myself very excited as money and time allowing the house will be finished by this time(ish) next year. My lovely husband will have built a new home inside our 1920s stone exterior. He has completed a bathroom, a kitchen and three bedrooms (the last one he turned into two), you can read about the last DIY adventure here, here and here. He is wonderful. I do say 'we' but it is mostly him with me entertaining the children, driving to the tip and making good coffee.
Demolition will start in a day or two, the new windows and front door are due to be fitted towards the end of next week and then it's all systems go! Simon has the hard work to do and I need to find a suitable colour for the walls and several light fittings.......... wish us luck!
