It's week 3 of the build, the wallpaper is off, the carpets are gone and the builders are in.
The outside of the house is getting a facelift and some of the internal walls are being knocked down, mainly the adjoining wall to the kitchen and dining room. The new front door has been put in and the entrance way has been opened up by knocking out the arch.
Progress is slow, and we have had a couple of frustrating set-backs as we've uncovered problems with the plasterwork, but I'm trying to stay positive flicking through magazines and trying to focus on the end picture - at the moment it's hard though.
Already the difference in the light in the house is great - the new back door has brought more light into the dark kitchen area.
I'm trying to source as much as I can on Ebay and at local auctions which is interesting but can be frustrating when the bids creep out of reach.
