K got the new stairs built quickly which was wonderful, I was very impressed. Knocking walls down and making the stairs go straight down meant we can now get to our bathroom at the bottom of the stairs. K also had to build a new door frame and I'm building a shelf in the space above. To do this we had to build a porch and knock a big bit off outside wall down. It was a very cold and chilly night the front door got moved out into its new position.
If not in the site office Captain Rupert can be found in the new hall, he can make a quick retreat through the new bathroom door back into the site office, very important for cabbage leaf tea breaks and any sudden loud sounds when his not wearing his rabbit ear protection, up the stairs, although his not so bothered now he has his very own site office, a quick warm up by the fire, or a breath of fresh air away from all the dust a chance to clean the dust from between his ears and whiskers.
And I'm going to get more kitchen space as all the doors are being blocked up. The kitchen is another project for another time, but it will be so nice one day to change the dark green tiles.
Confused about all our walls up and down, well we are its very strange when you go to the back door and its not there anymore. It has made such a huge change as the house is very small and its opened the space up, although its hard to show that in the pictures.
I do now feel we are on the home straight and will all feel loads better once the plasterer is in and it all looks better.
Oh.......captain rupert has a visitor to his site office.... he was expecting someone to advise on some top secret plans his drafting in some of the darker cooler depths of underneath the bath. He has been keeping lots of odd bits of wood away in the site office, I keep wanting them for fire wood and his not letting me, saying they are very important for his building plans. I think we have been giving him ideas.
He might tell me off for letting his plans slip.......... but I think his drawing up plans for a fox deterrent, come scarer that can be fitted to all all his friends houses to keep the big bad fox at bay maybe not sure........ his keeping it secret.
