It has been a while since I posted an update but that is not to say we have been ignoring the house. We’ve been pushing on with a few small jobs but it’s fair to say our priority has been our recent celebration in which The Boyfriend became The Husband!
We’re now back home with a bit more time on our hands so the house is our number one focus. Another big hold up has been that we have been waiting for a new window for the top floor and have had a number of delays courtesy of the builder…It needed to be custom made to fit the space and ensure it was strong enough to hold up the roof. Five months after we were told it would arrive it finally came and we’re really happy with how it looks:
You can see below that the style is very similar to what was there before but the wood is no longer rotting! The other reason we were so keen to get the window in was so that we could reinstate the ceiling on the top floor and then finish the plastering up there. It had looked like the photos below and was letting out all the heat! It was reassuring to see the plasterboard being put back in: And we now have a proper ceiling again (it just needs a bit of paint).
