You can imagine my surprise when I got home from a week in Kilkenny to see the timber frame of the ground floor of our new home almost up! Even though it was pouring out of the heavens, I took a leisurely walk through its rooms and spaces. For the first time there is a real sence of the spaces inside the house and I’m very pleased with how it’s all coming together.
It was very nice to return the following morning to see the house bathed in sunshine!
The first thing I noticed when walking on site this week, is the beautiful smell of wood! Its rich colour and its warmth. I’m so so glad we went with wood! Hopefully you’ll get a good sense of how things have moved along over the last week and a half. In the last few pictures of the slideshow below you can see the builder making a temporary stairs, when I visit the site tomorrow, I’ll be able to walk up it and around the first floor!!
I can’t wait for when Rob comes on site at the weekend.. He hasn’t seen it in two weeks!
