We still can’t have a shower at home…

… but the prospect is a lot closer than it was when we moved in two weeks ago.

The bathroom is now tiled, the bath is fitted, and we painted it on Wednesday and Thursday this week. It now needs the plumber and electrician to come back to do the final fixings.

 

It really has changed quite a lot – this shows it last year after we had stripped the panelling off the walls:

Don't worry, the vicar next door won't be able to see in!
It doesn’t look much like a bathroom here!

Hopefully the final plumbing and electrical fittings will go in this coming week, though it may be longer until we have the glass screen to separate the room in to wet & ‘dry’ areas.

Catching up

We’ve visited the house twice since the last post, in fact I’m writing this one having just spent the day working there, but you’ll hear about that in the next post. Today I’ll share the updates from our last visit.

The framework making up the ‘landing’ has been completed and the remainder of the old gable has been removed. On the other side of the tarp is the beginnings of our balcony!

The wall between the landing and the bathroom has been erected

Now we can see the actual size of the bathroom

 

Not only have they finished the landing structure, but they’ve also got the bedroom up as well.

The next surprise was that the wall and door under the main staircase have gone, opening up the hallway space and making the room feel so much bigger! Eventually we’ll have a glass balustrade instead.

Finally, we decided during our last visit that the empty doorway between the dining room and the sun-lounge wasn’t really how we wanted it to stay, so the pillars have now been removed leaving a much larger double-doorway.

In the summer the sun-lounge becomes like an oven and the lack of door means that the heat is passed straight into the dining room and raises the temperature of the house considerably. So we’re going to have some doors added in to regulate this somewhat. We just need to decide if they’ll be sliding doors, bifolds, or just regular doors!
