January 18th. The weather, once again has been awful. Cold and almost continuous rain. Good weather for rendering, apparently, although I suspect there has been a lot more sitting around drinking coffee and chatting in the room the workers have made their own.
However, today the sun is shining and we now have rather lovely window sills. White marble with grey running through.

Kitchen window sill.  Picture doesn't do it justice.

The electrician has been and laid some pipe work and delivered 'back boxes' and other materials to site. There are some holes in places we didn't expect, but I am sure he know what he is doing.There has been some work in the basement but we struggle to imagine that in one weeks time, this will be watertight and secure enough to take all of our furniture, which has to be moved from our friends house.

There is quite a bit of standing water and the walls still need some work.

If you have ever had major work done, you will probably feel as we do sometimes, that things move very slowly.  When looking at some old (pre-blog) photos this week I came across one taken from the hill behind, last January.  I thought it would be interesting to climb back up today to remind us of how far we have come in a relatively short space of time;

So then, this week we are expecting the basement to be finished, the electric work to be moved on and the elusive roof man to make an appearance. The weather forecast is good so, fingers crossed, we will see a lot more progress when we visit next weekend.
