Lilac is the colour

The first floor bedroom has had 2 coats of lilac paint to make a statement wall.  We are really pleased with this.

The 2nd floor bedroom is going to have a blue wall as a statement wall.  Curtains and bedding will all co-ordinate so hopefully the overall theme will be pleasing.  The other walls will be magnolia with white on the woodwork.

Its lovely to see the wainscoting going down especially round the curved walls, so clever!!

Outside the builders have been laying slabs around the raised beds that they created outside the kitchen.

Over the weekend we shall be adding more plants, herbs into this bed (as above) and flowers into the other bed.

Next week they are going to start tiling.  It’s so exciting seeing it all come to fruition after so long.  Can’t wait for it all to be finished.  Mid April is the expected finish time.

Progress on the building front October 2014

Our builders are making great progress on the renovation and building works.  Once all the foundations and underpinning were done, they laid a concrete floor and then were able to put up the rafters for the first floor of the pump room.

The following week they put up the rafters for the 2nd floor.

You could then see what the view will be from the 2nd floor bedroom window.

This week they broke through the ground floor window. The walls were pretty thick so this was quite a job.  The window has to be quite shallow as the bottom will be level with the raised ground in the front garden, hence you can see the plants through the opening which will need to be dug up.

The men have also been rendering the inside walls of the pump room with lime cement render (which breathes), getting ready for the eventual plaster on the walls.  The next job is to “tank” the floor with a waterproof membrane so no water can seep through.

Outside they have piled up the building blocks for construction of the new kitchen extension.  Can’t wait to see this go up.

We just have to pray for some dry weather to let the men get on with the outside work, as it has been horrendous with rain this week, so they have been concentrating on the inside jobs in the pump room.
