Focusing on the positive, thought I'd give you a snap shot of progress down at the site. Things are still moving along, albeit at a slower pace these days.
We have decided to to flush mount our TV's in the family room and in the seating area in the kitchen. Made to measure niches have been created in the stud work to accommodate the TV's and slim profile bracket.
Anyone who remembers the size of our trusty old box at Butterlaw Farm, will realise they will have to be new TV's!! Hoping that I can make the budget do magic tricks so we are able to fill the niches we've created.....
This is where the idea came from...ripped this out of a magazine ages ago, the tv will sit in between the two windows in the dining area just like this (she says confidently!)
When the internal plastering started without any windows in situ, I did think we were asking for trouble. However, Mark my builder has been a master at keeping things progressing, which has been difficult to do when the house should have been water tight back in October. As you can see in these pics the walls and ceilings that have been plastered have now turned an almost dried out powdery pink.
