    Bathroom and Ensuite Completed!!

    Our bathroom is completed!:):)  So very, very happy with how it looks:):) Just love our bath, reminds me of a gravy boat:) There are a few finishing touches needed but the majority of work is done.  Ah and the shower, you may just drool a little, I do;)   It is semi-frameless, a huge search to find what we wanted.  Our towel holders were an epic search, PC was determined to find a hook that would spread the towels to dry but we couldn’t find anything for a bathroom that showers potentially 6-10 people. Can you guess their ‘former life’? Yep wire fruit bowls, they suit the decor and meet…

    Main Bathroom Thus Far

    Whilst it’s been ages since I’ve updated you with our extensions, be assured that work has been happening, albeit slowly. We had intended to tile over Christmas, however PC spent the first three months of Bella’s life gazing, goo-ing and gushing about how beautiful she was, as besotted as any first time Dad. So our unplanned babymoon delayed the bathrooms/laundry project.  We finally began tiling the wet areas in March, though as we have five areas to tile and a life to live, progress has been spasmodic. First the waterproofer came and waterproofed all the wet areas. Next PC layed the scree with a little help from the Team. Then…
