Long time no see, again and it's going to be even longer in between posts for quite a while.
Guess what happened today? We got our planning permission for our extension - whey hey! Since last I mentioned planning things have changed quite a bit so I will update you.
You may, or may not depends on how interested you are in my waffle (and I forgive you if you are not interested in which case you will probably want to just leave now), recall that the last offer I had was raising the roof of the office, adding rooflights and the room becoming a kitchen.
My how things have moved on! Final offer, which was accepted, was to add an extra floor to the single story building currently where the 'office' is thus creating a new room upstairs. This new room is referred to in planning as bed 3 - in reality it will be hubby's hobby room. He's into model trains and railwayana (and no I'd never heard of that until I met him either!).
So as of next week hubby is beginning the long process of moving out of 'the office' and into 'the craft room' seriously cramping my style. Then in a couple of weeks time building work starts.
This is what we have now, from the outside:
The single storey will become a two storey and the new room will be in there. To get to this new room there will be a door in the outside wall of the current bed 3. Current bed 3 will then be knocked down, the bathroom extended into where the bedroom was and what was left of the bedroom will become a large hallway - anyone having difficulty following? I hope not!
When all the work is finished the outside will be rendered to get rid of those horrible blocked in doors.
I think I might even be able to show you the plans - let's see.
Yes, here you go - the now:
Of course all this means that I get a new kitchen, bathroom and craft room. Hubby gets an office, with a door he can shut - this means a lot to him it would appear - and a large (20ft x 12ft) hobby room.
What we both get is chaos! So I'm not going to be around much for quite sometime.
Will you abandon me? I do hope not - but I will forgive you if you do! If you don't abandon me I can only promise the occasional card and a lot of building waffle, which I will try to keep entertaining!
Oh and lots, and lots, and lots of photos!!!!
So that's my news - oh and I got a new car! Well new to me anyway - my poor old faithful finally gave up the fight in the last week of school and over the holidays I took delivery of a 59 plate Vauxhall Corsa - very smart she is too. SHMbO has been banned from even touching it - not much hardship there, to begin with she hated it!!!
So I will be back when I can, but I won't promise when.
Hope everyone out in blogland is keeping well and feeling crafty.
