Moving In

Slowly we are bringing our possessions out of storage and unpacking. This doesn't seem to fill the house as the place still seems cavernous but it's good to have comfy places to sit.

For a few days the place felt very empty without our lovely team of builders, electricians and plumbers. Now it is beginning to feel like home.

This is the view from my temporary 'desk' at the kitchen table, looking at a pile of cardboard boxes and other junk. It's a slow process as there is other (proper) work to do.

Birds flying high...

... you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel.
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life for me (and Brian).

with apologies to Nina Simone

On the Home Straight

And it feels like we are going full gallop.

For the first time Brian and I can do something practical: as soon as the team plaster a wall, we have been painting them. Although, having decided to make all the walls and ceilings white, we are getting rather snow-blind. 

So it was a pleasure to take advantage of being up a step ladder and open one of the roof-light windows to catch a glimpse of the boats moored on the River (the slate roof in the foreground is our garage).

Pictures for Kate

As the project continues, I am on-site several times a day, every day. We are all rather focused on the work going on inside the house and I have stopped taking pictures of the exterior. This is also changing daily as the rendering is starting to be applied.

Recently, Brian has been working on the mainland in the week and is delighted by the progress when he comes home - and it really is starting to feel like a home.

Mad March Stair

Lovely to see the ladder replaced with a staircase at last. Although still work in progress this makes getting upstairs a lot easier.

So here's a rather blurry selfie: sitting at the foot of our stair.

In like a Lion...

March arrives with blustery winds and rain; but onsite, our army of subcontractors are not at all deterred.
A steady stream of materials are delivered and there are rarely less then three vans parked outside.
