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?
It may seem odd but this is my first house. Up to this point, I have always shared. I have shared with friends, my parents... Oh... I guess if I want to be technical I share with my husband, but it isn't the same. This is our house and we get to design it ourselves.… Continue reading My first house
Well, it is still going... And the space and the design is bloody wonderful. We are finally getting to decorate the old house and the inside of the build is pretty much complete. We are waiting for the doors, window, cladding and one final roof. Inside we have the garden room, the kitchen and dining… Continue reading How is the build going?

Is that the new front door? We have rafters... Front door from the outside with… Continue reading Magic!
The wonderful people at Bird's Hill have come through and we are finally warm! I kid you not, but after a month and a half of no heating and just a front room fire, I could cry. I was also worried about the old (1960s-1970s) gas fire... We have no more headaches and I feel… Continue reading We have fire!
Although not as busy as it could have been. Unfortunately, late last night we found out that due to a run over with another job, the framers can't make it until next week. I was miffed. But today there are smiles. You see the large cherry picker and frames, with possibly a crane, would not… Continue reading Busy today
It has been busy and not busy. The dormers are complete and the second fix for the studio is going in today but the fella and I have been a little out of sorts. Headaches and pains and not feeling right. I thought it was the cold but then I started to wander if it… Continue reading How it is all going…
