The end is so close we can literally smell it!
The builders reckon that they will be finished on Tuesday next week, yep in 2 days!
We where down there today and the work that has been done in the last few weeks is pretty damned impressive, especially considering the storms that have been hitting the UK. Personally I doubt they will finish quite that soon but its very close.
All the ground works are pretty much done. Where there was the Somme it now resembles a garden, amazing transformation. All the structure is now in place, just needs planting and seeding. It makes a massive difference to the feel for the whole place.
|From battlefield to patio in 3 weeks!|
|Patio and sunken garden. The square hole in the fore ground will have a hot tub in it.|
|Area between the the house and bothy, sheltered spot for a cup of coffee on a summers morning|
So after being amazed by the progress outside we headed in. A sign on the door said that they heating was on! That's a bonus! Inside it felt warm (only 11 degrees) but warmer than it has been for about 3 years. Things are progressing, the bathrooms still need some tiling and plumbing and Dougal the electrician is in for a very busy day on monday if the Tuesday deadline is to be met. Overall though I think they could be finished by the end of next week. Its so exciting!
|That's a good sign...|
|11.1 degrees - the evidence|
|This is where all that warmth is coming from. Think I might need a degree in engineering to understand it|
|Main living area basically finished except got a clean up|
|Main bathroom - some tiling and plumbing still to do there|
