February has been an absolutely dreadful month.  Colder and wetter than anyone can remember. We have had storms of Biblical proportions and hailstones that were still evident 12 hours after falling, they were so huge.

 We have been up to the house on a few occasions and taken some photos but as most work had to take place inside, not a lot to show on the blog. A few leaks have become evident but as our builder has been away on holiday, nothing much could be done. He returns today and thankfully most of our furniture looks OK so far.  However, made a decision today that I should up-date, 'warts and all'.
You will see that the garage/basement door has been fitted and we finally have a roof,. This too is leaking but not too much of a worry as it is mainly cosmetic and we have not yet paid the roofer. Generally, the house itself seems to be pretty dry but there are few 'areas of concern' in our bedroom. Probably better that these are obviouse now when we can do something about it, rather than when we move in.

Stairs to the roof have been finished.

Inside rendering almost completed.

The house looks very grey and bleak today.  Takes a lot of imagination to see us living there in 6 weeks time. 

 The main thing that has happened this week is that measurements for windows and doors have been taken and the styles and price agreed. Work on this will commence next week and they should be ready to be fitted at the beginning of March. The weather is set to improve a bit this week (although I can hear distant thunder as I type) so perhaps there will be more to report by next weekend.
