Renovation project - we're getting there!!!!!!

Renovation project - we're getting there!!!!!!

The next few days have been a hive of activity, the wall between the boiler and the sink unit is in place, the sink unit has been put back and joy of joys we now have a working sink in the kitchen!!!!!!!



We had already bought the splash backs for the kitchen, these are aluminium boards that will go all around the work tops, but first it is getting the worktop back in place, it has bowed a little bit so to make sure we have it fitted correctly we need to have some weight on one corner, the only suitable tool to do this is me! So I have to stand on it whilst John screws it in to place, this is a little nerve wracking for me but it really does 
test the strength of the cupboards!




The work top is now fitted, the splash back is in place and so it’s time to make the wall units, these are made the same as the floor units, one very large cupboard. We will have to make a smaller cupboard to go inside to cover the consumer unit, but this is a job that can wait until we are ready to have an artisan come out and certificate the electrics.






But the kitchen is heading towards finalisation. We are on the home run now and next stop is the living room,

  2. Just thought i'd let you know that you are a inspiration to us. We also have a derelict house that wasn't lived in for 40 years and that had no amenities. Its like a breath of fresh air to see how far you have come and hopefully we can also get there in the future.
