Week 41 – Site Progress! Plus more light deliveries and front door changes

Another week has gone by and saw the roof trusses go up ready for the porch tiles

Andy set up the scaffolding ready…luckily we didn’t have to wait for the scaffolders to do this ha ha!

Thankfully the salt has started to wash off the bricks..phew! It looks here as though they’ve been spray painted but it won’t be long before they are back to their beautiful selves. In fact a lot of it has washed off already…I never thought I’d be hoping for rain!!


And so we are now ready for the tiles to go up, the windows and doors should be here in the next couple of weeks so this should be happening imminently! Watch this space..

Plus we have had more light deliveries this week. This little beauty could work well as a lower light…maybe on the wall behind the stairs


Andy also loves these up/down lights. Super simple and create a good amount of light, we are just undecided where to have them!

And this one, again another up/down light and might be the one that we go for in the hallway and perhaps a white version on the landing


Definitely going with this one high up in the vaulted areas on the landing, the simple design won’t detract from the cool double height

And this in the open plan kitchen, and maybe again, a white version in the double height area of the hallway

Check out our Instagram story highlights for positioning ideas and close ups!

Did I mention I ordered a dungarees too ha! As I will be doing all the painting I may as well look a little stylish!!

We also had to use another company for our front door and have decided to go for something a little different. Very much like the above with a kensington glass. If you haven’t heard of this, it is basically obscured glass with a clear border

Plus the company we are using Entranceway have a really cool online tool which allows you to try out different styles by uploading a photo of your house. This really helped us to visualise! And they colour match to pretty much any colour! Game changer! We can now go with our fave…inchyra blue from farrow and ball eek!
