Those of you who spotted my long list of things we want to do to our house (from earlier in the year) will be pleased to know that things are happening.
So far we have had a bulder in making a bathroom space for us in our large back bedroom. The corridor he has created looks as if it has always been there!
We've had to strip some wallpaper to do some of this work and it was really interesting to see how much of the original house remained untouched.
This is the original beam across the doorway (as was, now it leads to the new corridor to the bathroom and back bedroom) and beyond you can see the original built-in cupboard on the other side of the stairs.
We also found under the current wallpaper not just the mid-20th century grass sheaves pattern,
but what I suspect are remnants of the original paper from 1905. Very interesting (though I'm not a great fan of wallpaper and there wasn't enough to save so its being took off I'm afraid...)
We've also had roofers at our place repairing the bay window roof (amongst other minor jobs).
We've got a bathroom man coming to see us next week, and a joiner hopefully coming soon to sort out a new back gate. The builder will be putting in a new window (for the bathroom) in the new couple of weeks.
It's all VERY exciting... and I am quite possibly the saddest sack in town for being so excited.
