I'd like to say the builders are back and the roof is going on, but that would be a lie.
Hate when we get up super early to have the builders in and they have cancelled. It isn't the carpenters fault but that of Mumbles Construction as the building materials have not been ordered.
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.
I'm slow to anger. It takes ages for me to get into a huge simmering-red-faced-hate stage, and truth be told, I'm still not there yet. Could be that it has more to do with the length of time that this has been going on, but I am annoyed. No, actually a little beyond annoyed. Our… Continue reading Is that a drip I hear?
Goodness has it been a month since I posted? The build and life has been getting in the way and the past month has been a little stressful. Mostly due to family emergencies and such.

I was also worried about the old (1960s-1970s) gas fire... We have no more headaches and I feel… Continue reading We have fire!
Not sure. I had every intention of writing a post last week. Every intention of writing one Monday and Tuesday but I have been tired from being super busy. You see the build has come on leaps and bounds. If anything we are now on a quiet time as we are waiting for the wooden… Continue reading Why so quiet?
It arrived! The round window is here and it is lovely... I think once it is in, it is going to make the space. I can't wait for the hand over of the studio. That looks like next week as we are waiting for the picture window. But it is looking so good already. That… Continue reading Through the round window
There is meant to be a storm coming in tomorrow. It is going to be a big one and we have weather warnings. Currently we have the two dormers stripped and the garage plastered but not 100% watertight as the doors and windows aren't in. Scaffolding on the outside of the house... In fact, this… Continue reading Plaster and plastic
