I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything in over a week. It’s been that crazy. So the most recent update is that we’ve had to change solicitors as the old one was not working out for us. After considerable stress and bursting into tears after a phone conversation, I realised something had to change in that regard. Thankfully now we are working with a more amiable person who is more familiar with property law!
I was at the site three times this week, but forgot the camera twice.. I took a few pictures today of the progress over the last few days but too tired to upload them.
This week has seen the labourious and dirty job of applying the external cement board. Its a dusty unpleasant job which still isn’t done, as we’ve been waiting on another contractor. We also saw the battons which will hold the roof tiles go on. The roof tiles (the wrong ones, which have to be returned) arrived, as did some of the sanitary ware. A shower tray, a toilet bowl and a sink!!!
So the builders worked all week in miserable weather, but got lots done. I’m not going to post pictures today, cos I’m about to collapse with the tiredness..
So far I think this has been the most difficult week of the build. I think because the difficulties with the solicitor coincided with Josh teething and just a busy week generally. Lots of life had to happen this week and it all seemed to come at once. But its done now and hopefully next week will be brighter. Of course this week we were also promised a heatwave and we got non-stop rain instead.. bummer!
Keep on swimming, keep on swimming, keep on swimming 🙂
