By the time you read this blog I will have already spent 2 days in The Lake District.
Hubby and I decided we needed a well earned break.
I don’t know how the change will affect my sidekick. I am hoping time out will benefit us both as the last 12 months has been a busy one with all the building work taking place at home
I have become a danger to myself! I was very unfortunate last week when a piece of wood fell catching my leg, 7 days on I still have a whopping bruise down the back of my calf
I am relieved to say, all bits of wood and building materials are now removed as our kitchen is now finished!
This is how our journey started
The foundation’s where dug out as per planning application. As soon as the concrete was set the building work began.
Hubby has built our extension single handed whilst also going to work 6am – 2pm. Then coming home and starting on the build till 9 – 10pm. I really don’t know how he has managed it, but he has.
Me, well I have done a bit of labouring when needed, wallpapering, cleaning and most probably complained about the dust and mess.
Below is a collage of the stages of build
This has been the biggest project we have taken on. It has been stressful, messy, frustrating, time consuming and exhausting!
Would we do it again… Not advisable with dementia in tow!
It has definitely been a journey!
Hit a few bumps on our way.
The main thing is we got there in the end 😊
