Week 49 – Site Progress..Bay windows plus fence DIY!

Another week and we now have bay windows yay! We are edging ever closer to being weather tight! Just waiting on the front door, unfortunately there’s a two week delay but hey ho. Not too long now

So very excited for the peacock front door knocker!


I also can’t wait to take the safety fence down, it’ll feel so much closer to being a finished home then! Also it was definitely worth having the skip for a week, the front is so much tidier


Option 1 Slight overhang in line with the stone cills

Plus another decision made….the roof overhang for the bay windows!

Option 2 No overhang

Harold gave us a great way of visualising using the wood, and we have decided to go with option 1 and have an overhang. It’ll definitely work better with the stone cills

And we’ve been doing a little DIY fencing, panels painted Inchyra Blue Farrow and Ball colour match B&Q

Obviously Andy had to do the top bits…short girl problems ha!

They just need a second coat then we can put them together at the front of the house, horizontally. We have also gone with two different sizes..pinterest inspo!!

Plus Andy did a little insulating…check him out! And Harold secured some more of the joists on the landing

Next up bay window tiles, hopefully in week 50 yay!

Brinno time….
