My new room

Day 1 - demolition done and Katherine is bemused/shocked by the carnage. We are right down to the outside brick. When the ceiling came down, so did the insulation - sawdust and batting - and the floor was about 1 foot deep in the stuff.


Christopher took these and the light level is so low that Katherine is a blur!


The door on the left goes to a cupboard that hangs off the end of the house. It will soon turn into a door that leads out to my garden. Zoot alors!

The outside brick walls are parged with cement and those are 1 by 2 vertical furring strips. My contractor will have to build a stud wall so the room can be insulated properly. Oh and the rad has to be moved too - which would have been easier when the system was drained to put in the new boiler. oh well - all will work out in the end I trust!

Not a single stitch knitted last night! Shocking!

Onward dustily but unbowed!

Renovating, both messy and exciting. Good to have contractors then you don't have to worry about running outof steam before it's done! Will the door to the garden be a glass one allowing more light to enter?
