Preparing for another change!

We have to leave the kitchen for the moment - we are STILL waiting for the doors for the sink unit! Granite needs to be cut and the floor sorted - so whilst we are helpless in that room there are other rooms which require PREPARATION!

 

This is what the lounge looked like a few weeks ago........


now after this

 

it looked like this!



You can just make out the chimney breast Jon has built for the new fire.


 

Watched by Elsie!
 

At the top of the stairs the old attic entrance is being borded up, ready for the plasterer coming on 28th to skim both the lounge and hall & landing. Whilst Jon does the work I have a role to play too.......clearing away thanks to my PANASONIC!



However it has  been a lovely day so Freida and I went out to play!





We met up with Freida's Pal Mick

  1. You two are amazing. Its wonderful that you have a Hubby that can do so much construction. Your home will be beautiful and oh so cozy.
    Love the shots of the wide open beach and clear blue skies. What a wonderful place for Frieda to roam.

  2. The outdoor pictures look so prim and proper, as if all was put in place after a clean up by a giant Panasonic!! :)

  6. Progress seems to be progressing apace at your house, but today I was more interested in the beach, with the dogs. I love the final photo!

  7. Love your progress... when you have to wait for items to be installed you keep your other rooms moving along.

    What a great Christmas present and what lovely rooms to spend a cold winter snuggled up in !

    cheers, parsnip

  20. Gosh things are really moving now Denise. Hey! I can proudly boast that I've been to you home and seen the work in process, I particularly liked the Aga type stove and the lovely smell of wood burning, I can't believe that you prepared such a lovely lunch for us amidst all the on going work...Marvellous!
    Freida looks like she was enjoying her walk with her doggie pals, she's a lovely doggie.

  21. It's going to look lovely! We are just in the middle of *coughs* home improvement.... like a good wine... or a non Delia Christmas cake...it takes time. My hubby sealed up our fileplace, then forgot the airholes. *rolls eyes* Maybe by Christmas.... (Hope you are well)

  22. You're really having it all done, aren't you?! Wise to escape with Frieda I think.
