“So what did your home look like before you tore it down and started a fresh?”… I hear you ask! Well, to answer this, I’ve pulled together a selection of before and after shots starting with the kitchen and living/dining area. I’ve also thrown in some during shots for good measure. Before, our kitchen was rather small with very limited … More Before, (during) and after: kitchen/living area
It’s been a good few weeks since we moved into our new house and slowly but surely we are getting the rooms to look more homely and “lived” in. The builders have officially left (the portaloo was removed from site only the other day!!) and there is just a small snagging list to work through. … More Take a look inside…
I can, with a huge smile on my face, say that we are now inside our new home! The last two weeks of January have been a massive effort but we did it – we ARE IN! What’s more, the static caravan, the “worker’s” caravan and the shipping container are now off the site (much … More Tis’ the end of Jan and we are in!

The kitchen worktop has been fitted, the utility cabinets have been correctly altered to fit the space and the worktop has been templated.

I can’t deny though, … More Back to work

We reached two huge milestones; we took delivery of all our windows from Poland (and fitted each and every one of them), and our Tom Howley kitchen arrived on site and began its installation. Works have also started on the plumbing and electrical 2nd … More A big week
We’ve suddenly got to the stage where the walls are ready for some colour and the bathrooms are ready for some tiles. At last, the house is coming alive again and looking much more like a home… not a building site! To assist me with my colour decision making, the boys helped produce colour swatches. Rather … More Colour and tiles
So what has been going on in the last few weeks… well, quite a lot in fact (to my relief!). I really feel that things are starting to take shape which is so great to see. The sliding glass is in The underfloor heating is fully installed The heating is now on Plastering of the walls is … More The latest on site
Since my last post I can (with a smile on my face) inform you that we have managed to secure an earlier slot for the windows. Thankfully, someone who is also buying from our window supplier is willing to trade their delivery slot of the 16th December with our slot of the 2nd January. It has … More Onwards and upwards
