It's been too long here. And there are not many followers either
Anyways, the house is not yet finished!
7 months!!! Yes I could have built and finished an entire house by now!!!
Just don't ask why. We were told to move out for 4 weeks, it ended up as 8 weeks!
We had to move back in as my kids started back at school.
At the moment we are just living upstairs

Yes as you can see, bloggering by me has not been possible for a long time now.
Anyway the reason i couldn't blog gets complicated and laziness has nothing to do with it.
Firstly my camera was left at my mums house, photos have been a little messed up.
Secondly i have been mad busy. And now we have moved out! We cant stay there as it is. Looking at about 4 weeks.
today really i could say is the first day in weeks that i have had a little time to breath. so here goes a big photo upload!
new water pipe coming in
new area awaiting floating floor
porch side ready for walls
the other end of the blue pipe
tempo drain and foundation bricks
here comes the concrete floating floor beams
we also sold most of our loft contents. sorry kids x
brickies team arrive again, walls start to emerge
steel supports are put in my existing kitchen
This has been the most exciting part for me up till now, when the steels went in. Why do i love the steel?
then the other one at the side
work on the roof starts...yes thats rain!
i sold my much loved fireplace on ebay,
roof is on...just like that...like magic!
patio is complete....yes...just like that....! patio tiles bought from tile merchant on ebay, they are really nice Raj blend indian sandstone.
i prepare to move out of the house
that move was last night, i get there the next morning and the kitchen has already vanished.
two hours later it has been completely demolished
out of all that demolition, is the most beautiful sight...here these 2 steels.
the emersion of our new space, this has been the next most exciting moment. looking at the two steels.
and for the first time we can see what space we will be getting
it looks so grand and impressive
my favourite picture
then work starts indoors, floors are lifted. The timber gets taken out.
From the mains on the street to our house we have had a new bigger pipe fitted. This new pipe will ensure a good flow rate into our house, which has been pretty bad. This means we can all flush the loo at the same time as someone showers, and while i'm doing the washing up. (i hope)
and now no chimneys
hole from the bedroom floor
old toilet room gone
Our new boiler will be housed in its own little house outside. Fully insulated with a pitched roof!
And this is where we stand on the end of week 14.
