What a difference five weeks make — since the scaffolders finally made a reappearance and managed to get the scaffolding up just before the new neighbours moved into the flat below, works have moved at a pace.
I’ve been really impressed (hope it will last!) with my builder John — he has really made good progress with the loft conversion and first floor modifications.
In the loft space the steels are in, the floor is down, the loft shell built, the wooden window frames built and now….decisions on how to do the layout…
The hole has been made for the stairs
The kitchen and bathroom have been smashed through to create the space for what will become an ensuite bedroom.
And now trying to work out how to get excellent quality windows and bi-fold doors at reasonable prices…any recommendations?
And…how on earth (I’ve given it over a year’s thought so really should have mastered this) to configure the loft space into three zones: a kitchen, a lounge and a diner. Any ideas, let me know…
Here are some of my ideas so far:
