Slowly but surely we’re getting there!

Here’s a lovely photo of the house the other morning. It was the most beautiful morning, with the sunshine breaking through the haze! It turned into the loveliest day! I spent a good deal of it painting skirting boards, listening to the birds singing outside against the flow of the river..

In other great news, the tiling is all done, the plumbing is almost done, though I believe the tiles are so hard they’re breaking all of Florence’s drill bits.

The Electrics are all done, we have lots of light and electricity now and the Kitchen is almost finished. Photo’s will come soon when I get a chance to take and uploads them.

Today I took an ’emergency’ trip up to Dublin to pick up parts of the kitchen we were missing and a tool needed to drill stainless steel, without which the plumbing couldn’t be finished! I’m so glad that’s done now!


Day 100 – 102 – A hive of activity!

So its been a while since my last update… but I’ve been taking pictures. Since my last update I found and started a new job!! YAY, so things have been busy. I apologise for the onslaught of updates you’re now going to get as a result!

So these photos were taken on days 100 and 102, last week! The house was s hive of activity with work being done on installing roof lights on the north facing side of the roof, tiles going up at the same time, plastering on the south facing walls, plumping, electrics, heat recovery ventilation also going in! During the week there were up to 11 people on site at the same time, which was the busiest and messiest its been since the start!!

Here is a selection of photos taken from those two days!!

Day 96 and 97

Today we went to the house to meet with the electrician!! We spend almost 2 hours giving every socket and light switch a home. He’ll be starting next tuesday and hopes to have the job finished by the end of the week. Then the way will be clear to start installing the insulation!! Wow, can’t wait for that!!

Here are a few photo’s taken yesterday on Day 96, after the upstairs has been swept and tidied and most of the roof tiles are on the south facing side of the roof.  We brought Josh and Maya down, they had fun shouting down the plumbing pipes and looking out windows. I imagine Josh as a grown up man, looking out these windows.
