Week 7 and there is finally light at the end of the tunnel. With the week of Week 8 booked off from work for snagging and furniture deliveries, and although the builders seem to be approximately 1 week behind, we are positive that by the end of Week 8 we may have a house back…fingers crossed anyway! Week 7 has seen patchy, plastery walls and scuffed and cracked woodwork transformed into glossy painted surfaces. Our nagging doubts about colour have been resolved, and, having gone through 53 paint samples, we’re really pleased with the final choice.
We shall, however, keep this update brief in anticipation of a big reveal, and the start of the “before and after” series to keep you all entertained over the festive season. Elldrew embarked on a well deserved lazy weekend as chores were finished, and after all, who could resist a nice Christmassy movie as the temperatures plummet and Jack Frost is lurking in the bushes (well for this side of the planet anyway?
7am Monday sees our project management skills kick in as we choreograph a repertoire of carpet layers, telephone engineers, furniture deliveries and glaziers with Mr Builder and his 7 mini builders providing the perfect backing dancers.
We might even buy a case of elf hats for everyone to wear!
