The grandmother clock requires frequent winding. Someone’s got to do it.
Browsing through Rachel Allen’s ‘Everyday Kitchen‘ for some dinner inspiration.
Well, it’s really looking like a building site today. It lashed out of the heavens this morning and there’s mud everywhere. I’m glad I’m not on a building team. I wouldn’t have gotten out of the truck this morning in that weather.
Despite the rain though the site is quite neat and tidy looking.
John arrived home this evening and had a quick look and commented on the hardcore being down, before he headed off out the door again. Apparently the hardcore being down is good news because it means the floor can be poured and then the walls will start soon.
This is the kitchen area. I can’t wait until that horrible little shed on the far side of the fencing is knocked down. I hate it with a passion. At the moment it contains the boiler unit which is going to be moved out of there.
This is the kitchen area. I really hope it’s going to be big enough. I’m finding it very hard to judge the space by looking at what’s there at the moment.
And this is the front view of the building works at the moment.
It’s all moving along quite quickly, and himself is happy, which is good.
So….eight weeks of a timeline? Today marked one week since commencement of the works. Fingers crossed!
Photos from Monday evening, 14th October. Amazing progress made today.
I left the house shortly before 8am in the morning. When I returned after about half an hour there were three vans, a heap of blocks in the driveway, and about half a dozen men busy at work.
And they had this done by about 3:30 in the afternoon.
Photos from Friday. Everything is ready for the blocklayers to start on Monday. I can’t believe the progress that’s been made.
Just as well the builders put that fencing up though. Yesterday morning I completely forgot about the construction going on at the side of the house, and gently reversed until I heard a ‘clang’ at the rear of the car. Oops!
