lots more timber

well here we are at the end of week 6 and the roof timber is going up, the whole house is now being surrounded with scaffolding (not so pretty) but it really seems to be happening now.

blooming marvellous

thought i would just share this with you, my window box is looking beautiful, i hope it will stay that way for at least the next 3 weeks - yes! its only 3 weeks to the wedding. wedding dress is finished but not the bridesmaids - guess what i will be doing next week?

lots of timber and an inspection visit

the computer has been down and i've been bereft without it, its back now but still slow - i think it might have to go eventually. anyway lots has happened here - i seem to have a daily meeting with david our builder making decisions that i truly hope are right. suddenly the timber walls have grown and we can walk through the rooms of the house. it now seems enormous. our very own chartered surveyor (ret'd) came to inspect and commented that it looked like a village hall!
