The roof is slated and the family room has it's stone cladding
(check out the cute little chimneys too!)
You can probably see we are still waiting for our windows (don't ask!), they are now due to be fitted mid January. I was really upset about the delay initially, however it has given me a little bit of breathing space to do other things apart from "the house" in the run up to Christmas. The hectic schedule will pick up again at the beginning of January.
The concrete staircase is now in
They do look a little steep, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will all come together once the chunky oak treads go on. Still can't decided on balustrading yet.
The treads that go on will make the staircase look something along the lines of this one.
Am anxious to see what they will look like fitted, they are meant to be fitted flush into the wall, there should be no light fitting visible.
Just a few wires!
First fix electrics are now just about complete
Recessed light fittings have been chosen.
Have decided on a Wever & Ducre fitting called "Deep"
Next job in January is to decide on the style of sockets!
Loft space in kids rooms
Very cool...but....very high up!
both of my older girls have loft space built into their bedrooms....seemed like a great fun idea at the time, now they seem incredibly high up. We were just going to use a fixed ladder for access, something like this
with safety glass balustrade like this
Looking at the hight now we are thinking about maybe putting some type of fixed staircase or spiral in and maybe using a trapdoor for access....work in progress watch this space!!
Kitchen & Dining
Velux windows are fitted in dining area
We've gone with 4 velux in the vaulted roof, these are a late amendment but am please we decided to go for them now, it will make the whole kitchen area so light.
looking down from the kitchen into the dining area
Well that's about all for now folks, will try to get a few more shots this week and then that's the site closed til after the Christmas break.
Bye for now and a Merry Christmas!
