The builders have left the building!

An update on the state of our kitchen

What with Glastonbury going on, I haven’t been uploading the latest pictures of our kitchen, but I’ve just about got time to carry on now. This is how it looked when the builders had finished downstairs and were busy constructing walls upstairs. All the walls and staircase are now completely gone!

Then they brilliantly went to Wells Reclamation and collected our new sink; brought it back, managed to get it inside and then installed it for us. How fantastic is that? I don’t know if you can tell from the

photo, but that sink is flipping heavy!! Chris and I couldn’t lift one corner! It is one great big hunk of slate! And I love it! We were going to go for the normal sink unit with a black granite butler sink; but then we saw this and had to have it. It proved quite a problem for the plumber though, as he had to order the plug as standard ones didn’t fit, and then he spent about an hour filing the hole as it wasn’t drilled entirely straight. We had to seal it with expensive sealer that wouldn’t change the colour. It’s all worth it though. And after 3 weeks of not having a kitchen sink at all; it’s fantastic to have a fully functional one, and such a cool looking one as well.

It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
Exposing a fireplace and other renovating adventures
January 6, 2017
Some of you have been following the renovating side of this blog since we moved in eight and a half years ago; so I thought I’d do a quick update of a couple of the smaller jobs that we’ve done recently. The first clue that there was an old fireplace in our bedroom was the hearthstone that we found when lifting up the beige carpet to reveal the Georgian floorboards. The second clue was the obvious difference in sound when knocking on the wall. The third clue was the whacking great hole behind the plaster when we hit it with a hammer….
