Week 51 – Site Progress! Garage door, more deliveries plus decisions…

Yesssss we have a garage door! And it’s certainly a statement piece don’t you think! It is ocean blue ral 5020…the camera seems to darken the colour but you get the idea

And this one is an insulated sectional remote control door…perfect for when we’re taking the dogs for walkies via the garage right! And I like that this is at the back of the house, and gives a nod to the other green and blue notes at the front

Plus it turns out that, due to incorrect measurements, it had to be made again from scratch, hence the 6 week wait!

And a chipboard delivery for upstairs…

Plus another light, this time an up/down plaster light, and we will probably go with four of these in the hallway and maybe smaller versions on the landing…

It should work well with the pendant lights in the double height entrance…

Cannot wait to see the hallway come to life!

I love the simplicity of these lights too, and they won’t take away from the impact of the pendant lights….last Post

Also, our electrician Eddie came to have a nosey, as we should be ready for the first fix soon…and with that we need to decide where we would like sockets! Cue makeshift plans before editing a pdf…we will no doubt need more than we think!

And after some tweaking…here they are…

Let’s see if Eddie thinks we have enough!

And so that’s it for another week, our charity shop finds arrived on Tuesday and are currently living in the new garage until we can put them in their rightful places!

Hopefully the front door will arrive soon, it isn’t necessarily holding anything up, however the house needs to be weather tight in order for funds from the self build mortgage to be released! Ugh watch this space! I’ll be making one myself at this rate…

Brinno time…
