Progress

Of sorts, it's all coming down and the dust is flying. The contents of the front are in the dining room, could have done with a giant shoe horn I can tell you!


When you open my front door you are now greeted by this;





A rather huge green plastic sheet and some original varnished wallpaper. But when you hold your breathe (because of the dust) and sneak behind the greenness you spy a wonderful chimney breast;




The bit under the arch which has been added when the gas fire was will be removed and the brick will be repaired and repointed and painted like the chimney breasts upstairs, I can't wait, this, for me, is the most exciting bit!


This is what is left under the stairs where our new entrance will be;




And this is the other side of the plastic sheet which will be beautiful bookshelves;



It's still very exciting and scary.

It all looks very exciting! Especially the chimney breast. We uncovered ours when we moved into this house and it was the best thing we ever did - I love it! Lucy x
