Well, here we are entering the final stage of our house demolition/re-build. The dining room, living room, train track making space, crafting space, you name it space. This is going to be hard. Very hard. It's the heart of our home, the hallway/stairs hallway of last summer was hard as wherever you wanted to be in the house meant passing through the mess. Now there will be no passing through.
I took these pictures yesterday when we had half emptied the room (yes, it IS half empty). Now it is completely empty. Tomorrow the walls start coming down. Tomorrow the mess and stress begins. We will be living upstairs and going out the front door and around the house to go in the kitchen to prepare meals etc. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the weather stays fine and we can eat in the garden.
I can't wait for it all to be finished, the dining room will match the front and our home will be so beautiful. Francesca is especially excited about planning our fabulous Christmas party. This year is going to be amazing; a proper sized tree and sorted house without tool boxes and bits of plasterboard everywhere for people to trip over!
Hopefully the time living upstairs will enable me to tidy and sort my den come stash room enough for me to continue making and creating.
Anyhoo, am off to enlarge part of my sketchbook!
