Following on from the progress made in the bathroom last weekend, The Boyfriend has continued the demolition work and made huge changes.
He also made some interesting discoveries as he stripped things back. This book from 1903 was hidden in the wall between the bathroom and the landing – it is really well kept so will definitely be worth a read.
Up in the attic he also found a stash of Christmas paper which will come in handy later in the year as well as a pile of old beer bottles and household rubbish that went straight out to the skip.
The aim of the day was to pull back the ceiling and The Boyfriend was on a mission to get it done before the football started. The dust was thick and black and the poor guy was absolutely covered – he looked like he’d been working down a chimney and needed several showers to get completely clean. Luckily he had his mask and goggles on but it wasn’t much fun. Anyway, he’s done a great job and saved us several £££ by doing it himself.
