End February 2015 – Update

sunshineWell two more weeks have passed since our last blog and it is great to see everything coming together. You will see from the pictures the main focus over the two weeks has been getting the external path in place. It’s amazing to see that it is all laid by hand, each of the granite blocks are about 11cm cubed. It looking really good.

The ceilings are now in the bathrooms and the wiring is being installed in the conduits. The small bathroom at the entrance of the house has been tiled, we decided we would go for just plain white here as it is aimed at for when I come in from the garden and can shower and keep all the dust and dirt away from the house.

The first on the built in cupboards in the bedrooms is being installed, still needs to be trimmed and all the doors put in place, but the hanging space and drawers etc. are looking superb.

However we have the first real technical hitch. It seems the shutters on the large windows are just too big; the 3-metre width is causing the shutters to jump from the tracks. To correct the problem, it has been decided that they will be spilt in two, one covering the window space and the second the door, so splitting 1/3rd and 2/3rds. Just means we will have to have an additional guide on the outside but it should not be too visible.

Here’s the photos from the last two weeks, so you can see the progress for yourself.
