Thank you so much, it’s way more than I could have ever hoped for. Think I’m going to spend most of my time just staring out those windows when this is all done. Although, there’s still a huge amount to do inside and 16 tons of stone in the driveway for building a porch so that might not be for a while yet..
@johnnettles2 ooh, do you have any pictures?? I’ve got pink and purple paint and a can of montana crackle paint sitting waiting for the steamroller but just haven’t had a chance yet.. not sure if we’ll get mature trees in our lifetime, but hoping for at least some windbreaks and willow hedgerows over time. That must be really exciting! I hope you’ll be starting a thread I can follow!
@Hefty You couldn’t have articulated that better! Had some really good days recently and then the plumbers haven’t shown up this week, the joiner’s clamp holding the shower panels came off the wall and chipped the shower tray.. the main room looks like a building site, and we have to move in Friday morning.. been a tough couple days.. it looks like you’re making something really beautiful there! I can’t imagine what 18 months on your own must feel like, I’m incredibly impressed by your resilience. Maybe one day we can give tours to each other, no need to lock up the bike either! If you ever need a rant or a vent I’m here.
@Foreigner65 that’s really great info, thank you very much! I just missed carbide hole saws in the middle of Lidl as well.. yeah uh huh, water underfloor heating so it’ll be powering that and the hot water. Yeah me neither, and there doesn’t seem to be a huge amount of suppliers/engineers either..?
Haha, thank you, although I reckon I’m just giving off an impression of organised or together..
I did make these wee tile bits for framing the sockets so it’s level behind for screwing the socket on top of. Got the outside lights fitted too.
The joiner got the shower panels finished today which I’m really happy with the look of. I tried cutting the floor tiles for finishing the room this evening but failed with a tricky fit around the shower panel trim and not quite in the right headspace so called it a night and I’ll do it in the light at the weekend..
We had the most amazing northern lights the other night. This is a long exposure, but you could actually see the green verticals moving around by eye.
