I’d like to say that everything has been so good I simply haven’t had the time to blog, but that would be a lie. Here’s the deal. We have fought with the builder, he has and hasn’t listened but for whatever reason he has started to move on with getting us complete. Don’t get me wrong, I am not holding my breath but if he does as he says then we will be finished except snagging in a months time.
The problem is that it has impacted my health, mental and physical. I finished the PhD and am awaiting the viva but I find that I am listless and unable to focus. Some of it is to do with the fact I still have a lot wrong with me, and there are no easy fixes. But it has left me having difficulty in writing anything, hence my absence.
The story so far is that the cladding is complete and the two flat roofs are now sealed so the rubber can not be ripped off by the wind. The outside taps are done and the electrics have all been signed off. We can water the vegetables and they are doing so much better for it.
I have a kitchen sink after not having one for over a year – it is so good to be able to cook without having to use the bathroom sink. The kitchen needs kick boards and such but it is almost complete and I need to decide on the splash back. I have started the upholstering and the floor in the extension is down. Honestly, we are so damn happy.
Needed to do?
– The roof – yes we are still getting leaks and drips.
– The decking – at the moment due to the mobility issues I have I can’t get out through the bi-folds but I have to use the back door. Not a big issue but it would be nice to redesign the garden so we could use it.
Wish us luck and I will try to stay motivated enough to write at least the blog…
