New Year's Day 2015.
Happy New Year all. Although it is only a few days since we last went, there have been a lot of workers on site so we though a visit today would start 2015 on a positive note. The renderers/plasterers are still in evidence but the dog has left the building. We assume that the workman who was feeding it took him home for New Year.
This week we finalised the kitchen, paid and signed contracts and brought ovens, dishwasher etc., so that feels like progress. The plumbers have been working this week and knocked great big holes in the walls - sometimes it feels as though when we take 2 steps forward, we then take one back. Work has finally started on the roof and the Electrician is due to start after the holiday break.

The roof work begins.

Up on the roof. This will one day be part of the terrace.

Roof terrace again.

Pool filling up nicely.

The basement. It runs the whole length of the terrace and  will have doors on it quite soon as it is where our furniture will be stored.

Our builder says work should recommence tomorrow, which would be nice, but if past experience is anything to go by, we don't really expect to see any workers 'till Monday. However, another payment has been requested so, you never know!!
