Here’s an update on the renovation work. Things are moving along quickly now, nearly finished. Peter-the-Painter is still working and hopes to be finished on Thursday. The glass splashback for the kitchen is due to be fitted on Friday morning, and then we ring up the electrician who will fix the electrical plates to the walls, finish connecting up the under-floor heating, and reconnect the alarm system again (with the assistance of the specialist alarm fitters). And here are a few photos.
The new kitchen tap is fitted but there is one small problem. We need a ‘whole-house pump’ for the hot water pressure to be boosted enough for this fancy bit of kit of work properly. At the moment, the mixer doesn’t mix all that well, but it is functioning well enough. The end of the tap is a pull-out type with a hose attachment. I love that.
A view across our new dining room table and chairs.
Painting still needs doing on the walls, and the Georgian door still needs painting, but all good things come to those who wait. And wait. And wait. So I’m told. It was a beautiful spring day, so we opened the folding doors all the way to allow the house to be flushed through with pollen. Hachooo! But we love those folding doors, and how it opens up the house to the outside.
Another view of the same thing. Apologies, but I just can’t help myself. I love looking it!
