Living on two sides of the driveway

It is official. We have a kitchen, dining area and living space that we are now using. It’s a bit challenging juggling between the two separate spaces across the driveway but we are gradually developing a routine. The builders started tearing apart the read end of the house last Monday. They’d done as much as they could by lunch. A lot of asbestos sheeting was used in a previous ‘upgrade’ so a team of experts will be in this Tuesday to remove all the sheeting safely. Then it’s full steam ahead with the rear of the house and the link. The Cordial Factory Crew have been flat out this past two weeks and are feeling somewhat discombobulated.

Day 92 – The kitchen is in

Today is a landmark day. The Cordial Factory Crew are proud to announce that the kitchen is in. Hooray! We are being a little premature as the photos will attest. Yes, the kitchen is in, it’s just not put together yet. Soon, very soon. Matt has also been working away at the fiddly bits (a technical term for skirtings and architraves). Dugald has told us to be ready to move into the hall this weekend. That’s only 4 sleeps. Next week they are planning to pull down the back end of the house. Time to pack some boxes.
