The spindles are here and once Chris finishes in the utility major job he will resume in the kitchenlounge area and fit these to the stairs. Pretty splendid job he did on those too!
We have a date for Lapeyre to visit - 1st July, 2020. Meanwhile, we still have open house! The kitchen is largely done and I have pre-empted its completion and moved some of my things into it.
Made to measure
Tiles in the kitchen are nearing completion - further delayed by the doors that were made to measure yet seem to be mismatched doors and frame! The frame fits but thats about it.
Finished the sandblasting
Lots going on chez nous. Having finished the sandblasting in the bedroom - a bone of contention as we decided to do this having virtually finished decorating
We are in the grip of a pandemic
Sad times and too many deaths. Little sign of it abating at the moment with a vaccine sadly too far in the future.
What a lot we have managed
We have collected our trees - the largest standing at approximately 7 metres and planted them in the top garden.
I returned from my travels
I was shocked at the size of the door opening but can see that it will make a lovely link between kitchen and lounge and create more light too.
Rather messy works
My decision to have an alternative door from Kitchen to Lounge turned out to be a little more complicated than might be imagined.
Plans for January
The last few days have been focused on the kitchen. The beams are sanded, washed, bleached, worming treatment applied and lastly, varnish.
A carrier full of spring bulbs.
A change in the weather has prompted some gardening. A carrier full of spring bulbs are planted and I look forward to seeing the results.
Rain, rain, rain
Rain, rain, rain - leaving time for the indoor jobs. The insulation is in on both sides of the house - an itchy, cramped and unenviable task
Begins the rain
The summer has ended and so begins the rain as of yesterday - all day! A notable drop in temperature but still sticky.
Summer has ended
Free of weeds
