Building update (Week 2 – Day 5)


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.

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.

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!
