The joiners were on site three days this week and have done a fair bit.

The kitchen is stripped out of its units and appliances and the wall between the kitchen and utility taken down. It's quite a big room at 2.5m x 7m - bt as you can see from the dimensions, it's long and narrow. We're keeping the existing cupboard under the stairs to use as a pantry.

Upstairs, much of the lath and plaster on the external walls and ceilings has been removed to allow the installation of the new insulation. Thankfully, everything looks nice and sound, including the latha nd plaster on the internal walls.

We bought the floor tiles for the bathroom yesterday - Dan was keen to do so in case I changed my mind AGAIN. Do you know how sometimes you don't really know what you want but you know you'll know when you see it? Is that a girl thing? Anyway, it's black slate which will look good with the white suite and is suitable for the underfloor heating. I've seen wall tiles I like but we'd better get a sample before we commit.
