In door flooding. Thunder and lightning, meant that for a week the work men downed tools. Bottom right is a paddling pool. Best buy ever!
A huge wasps nest was found. Its really well made, absolutely fascinating, all the swirly bits. Can you see the cells inside?
This is the space where one dormer will go.
The massive skip. The fence is just over 6 foot tall.
This green carpet was on the walls in the bedroom in the loft. Yes on the wall. Floor boards on the floor, carpet tiles on the walls? And if you touched it, the fibres turned to green dust on your hand.
Do you call it a loft or an attic? Is it a loft until it is converted and then is it called an attic room?
This was in the storage in the eaves. I believe it was an off cut of the carpet that was in the lounge. It had faded so much in the sun, that it was white in front of the window and the french doors.
This is the insulation that has been put in over the old floor in what will be the master bedroom. Its wool fibre. I cant remember the name.
Looks like an aquarium right?!? This is the old velux in the front loft, over looking the back garden. I cant see our of it as I am too short.. The blue is the tarps over the top as the weather isnt getting any better.
Part of the new roof and one of the front dormer openings.
Crawled under and out into the opening. Left on the picture is the old roof. Right is the new roof. You can see the height we are gaining and it will make the useable room larger.
Wonky camera view here. Horizontal, is the old roof and that is out into the sky.
Ignore the bobbly ceiling, they are all over this house. At least until the Plasterer does his job. The picture is to show the water running from the light fitting.
The kitchen ceiling is falling down also, I dont have a picture of that yet, just imagine the ceiling a cupboard with the consumer unit in it and water pouring down the wall, out the bottom of the cupboard.
All go, here.
The builders will be here this weekend and are working through the rain. 'Apparently'. I will believe that when I see it.
These pictures will probably only make sense to Kev and Jam, and people who have built their own house or had this work done. I can see it all in real life and I cant really see what is happening.
At the moment is like that part in Grand Designs when they play the gloomy music. Lets hope we get the happy music that it is all finished at some point. There has to be an end right? LOL LOL *laughs manically* *involuntary crazy eye movements*
This weekend, we are off to our old stomping ground, Stroud, where I will buy vegetables with dirt but no chemicals. Yes, you can buy organic somewhere else, but we are going for lunch with friends. I will go early to see what is good at the street market, buy some used paperbacks and some honey.
What are you up to?
P.S. Why do builders use so much toilet roll? We are going through a roll and a half a day
