building update

Hello blogworld

Well I did say you wouldn't see me much this week - busy social life dont'ya know!!  Well, SHMbO has anyway!!

But so as you don't feel completely ignored, I thought I'd show you some pics of how the extension to the house is coming on.

Outside, apart from painting it, is done.  I know it looks a bit grim, it was supposed to be coloured render that didn't need painting - but it didn't work out!  So now we have to wait for the spring and good weather to paint it.

Inside the new room is getting there.  The Building Regulations man said it all has to be insulated, hence the spaceship look!  Not bad though hubby is doing all this himself (well with a little help from me and SWMbO), but we'll get a plasterer in to skim it - hubby might be good with a drill but he can't plaster!!

But my new kitchen will be a store room for a few months yet.  Since we got the planning approval on the garages, that's going to take priority.  Ho hum, maybe next year for new kitchen and craft room??

See's ya tomorrow with my card for the new Digi Choosday challenge!

Well, it is coming together nicely now!

Sorry to hear that your kitchen has to wait. I bet you are looking forward to your new craft room!

Hi, Sarah! That's one heck of an extension and it's starting to look good on the inside - almost a usable room! Can't believe that the garage takes priority over a kitchen AND craft room, mind you, if it's a man doing the work!?! (I know where my hubby's priority would be too!) We have the workmen coming in tomorrow for demolition, then rewire Thursday/Friday and central heating next Wednesday! I'm hoping that after then I can start prepping walls and painting ceilings in the bedrooms...fingers crossed! I'll take some pics with my tablet so you can see the before and after! Hugs, Lisa x
