Welcome to my blog

We moved to Ireland with the notion of building our "dream" home in May 2007 after purchasing the site earlier on that year. Mr C is Irish and originally from Limerick but he remains in the UK during the week, his job is running www.cruise.co.uk and earning the bucks that will hopefully allow us to "live the dream."

It's taken us almost two years but ground will be broken on the site by the end of May 09!! A lot of blood, sweat & loads of tears (all mine!) have gone into this project already, we left a fabulous house behind in Newcastle...and now for my Kevin McLeod bit, "can the new build can live up to my expectations and the old house we left behind"? I'm not sure...keep watching my blog and you'll find out!!

Brick bone Mosaic Shower part 1

I like these tiles!

No tiling to the base of the shower yet...pebbles will be making an appearance as they mould really well to the curve in the floor. It will certainly be a unique walk-in shower, but I like!

Amelia says her tiles look a bit like bamboo! I'm taking it this is a good thing...

The tiles have curved really nicely where needed, this wouldn't have been possible if I'd chosen to lay them horizontally!
No grouting or sealing yet and Still a way to go with the finishing the bathrooms.  This does not stop me now however, from growing increasingly impatient to see the actual bathroom fitting going in!


  1. Oh good idea to put them vertically, can't wait to see the finished rooms. Good weather on the way this week too :)

    All things nice...

  2. Wow, you're going to feel transported when you have shower! Rachaelxx
