Some pictures from the end of last week, here is the plaster board going up ready for the plasterer to skim over the top. You can see the plasterboard already covering the ceiling. Our builders do seem to be doing it a little arse about face as the windows aren’t even in yet 😬... I’m sure they know what they’re doing though !
The house is moving on slowly , the piping for the underfloor heating is in, I’ve included a photo for anyone interested in how it is laid. More importantly, I’ve put together my favourite colour samples to see them all pulled together . The lighter coloured ‘fossil like’ flooring we going for is the main kitchen floor . We were going for naturally oiled wood for the whole ground floor but have had a massive U turn.
The lovely star tiles are for our cloakroom . The dark wood paint sample is railings #f&b this is the colour of our kitchen cabinets . It looks very dark in the photo but I love it and think it will work magnificently against the light flooring .
With no structural works to the existing house, and taking full advantage of the extended 6m Permitted Development allowances (arguing, and winning, with the LPA over the definition of an eaves versus a ridge to get extra height) this extension was completed using standard sized products to minimise cost - the result of which allowed the internal space to be maximised. Thanks to @agnesesanvito for the quick turnaround - we lucked out with the weather.
Here we are sitting outside tonight, it’s a lovely calm evening in October can you believe it? We need new garden furniture to replace the old and the decking is looking tired as you can see! One day this view will be different! We are getting ready to order the concrete for the floor next week 🛠🏡😍👍🏻
• DAY 60 • current kitchen situ 🙈😩 As someone who loves a clean, tidy home with everything in order... this makes me feel VERY uncomfortable 😳😖😫 We are no longer with running water downstairs which means our bathroom sink is our main water supply! 😵 My stress levels are officially through the roof and thats without the knock through of the existing kitchen wall (which is due to be taking place tomorrow)! If only I could fast forward the next few weeks and get to a point beyond the chaos that would be ideal - if only if only! Anyone fancy 5 lodgers for a few weeks? 🙈 #reallife#renovation#renovationproject#kitchenextension#kitchen#mess#chaos#renoreality#instareality#building#extension#houseextension
We have recently submitted planning for a lovely stone extension in Leeds. A polished concrete detail wraps around the top of the extension stepping down above the openings. Large sliding doors have also been designed to slide into the external wall allowing the swim spa to open up to the garden.
Slightly fed up of living like this now #houseextension
With Alice home for a second day with a stomach bug, tumble dryer packed up, builders everywhere and dust levels in the house at an all time high 😩😩
Can’t wait to get this finished now!
