Well our new builders have been busy for the last week or so and heaps has happened. The plastering is nearing completion, built in robes have been framed and plastered, the electrician has been to do most of his stuff and the painter will start in some rooms on Tuesday.
So some photos.
Firstly the guest bedroom. Photos show the new built in cupboard, new wider cornicing and plaster all patched. This room should be ready for painting early next week.
The office is fully plastered and built in cupboards framed. Cornicing still to be finished and skirting boards to go back on. Then onto painting late next week hopefully.
The front door. The first photo is a before shot. Unfortunately this doesn't show the glass to it's best effect! That is - the top three sections were yellow, the sidelights pink and two small sections pink and the large centre piece blue. Stunning!
We had the glass replaced yesterday, as below. Toughened translucent in the door and patterened etched glass in the remaining panels. I think it has improved the door a million times. Now we just need to paint... I have started thinking colours and will have some samples to show soon. To the right of the door in the photo below you can see a couple of options, but need to get some different tones. Will probably end up with a deepish red. Although yellow does also appeal...
That's about it for now. This week should see lots of progress as things will transform once white paint is applied in large doses. Also the back shed will be demolished which is exciting.
Two more weeks of building/painting and then we have the carpets booked and move in date. Hopefully all will go to plan from here. In the meantime, we are on the look out for light fittings and window furnishings.
