Things are definitely progressing upstairs and while The Boyfriend is worried it is all going too slowly, a quick look back at our photos shows just what’s been done in the last two weeks.
The plumber came in to take things off the walls and although it was only a few hours work, it definitely felt like things had changed.
1) The old gas fire is now out (and it looks like the chimney is lined)
2) The long radiator is off the wall (so we can put a new wall up one day)
Since then, The Boyfriend has done a brilliant job stripping back all the wallpaper. We need to go and buy a ladder for the really tall wall that goes up the stairs but he’s made his way all the way down to the first floor landing.
We’ve had another visit from the builder, so are just waiting for a date that he can start and then things will really be underway. The only knock back at the moment is the planning office. The notice is now outside the house (which is exciting) but we’ve been told we need a visit from the Building Regulation department too…
