Kitchen Developments

Remember this?





It now looks like this.


Remember this?



It now looks like this.

My job has been to remove all the tiles...and clear the kitchen.


Jon has been busy with his new cordless drill.


Sorting out the lights - ready for plasterer on Thursday who is skimming the ceiling.



There are a coup[le of sockets to fit.


The 20 year old patio door is being replaced with a window and full size door (infact it is happening as I type here) 



Yesterday the kitchen was delivered - in torrential rain!


You can see the weather conditions through the window!


The delivery lads were very very wet - they welcomed the tea and toast I made for them.

Watch this space!

  5. You did a great job on the tile removal.

    There looks to be a lot of progress being made and before you know it the kitchen will be done. Then you will only be thinking about how beautiful it looks. It makes me compare it to having a baby. It takes a long time, lots of pain involved, and then a beautiful model shows up.

    God bless.

    Just keep repeating "soon be done, soon be done".

  10. Lovely to catch up again and so good that I am not the only one up to my eyeballs in building projects. Ours has been ongoing for 20 years, three houses restored and now it is the old stable block that is in the process of being renovated. Good luck with your kitchen, exciting times, but hard work and very unsettling to be living in the middle of it x
