Week 53 – Site Progress..chipboard and the big one…weather tight!

More chipboard this week and it’s been great, actually walking around upstairs and getting a real feel for the space!

Plus a little snagging as you can imagine ha!

My ensuite and dressing room

Master bedroom and dressing room

And we are weather tight! Its a temporary door but at least we can now get the ball rolling with the self build mortgage, and the next stage of funds can be released..Happy days!

It is probably for the best having a makeshift door anyway…with all the inevitable mess!

Eek she’s really starting to look like a home! Can’t wait for the bay window roof tiles

And we’ve had a busy weekend chipboarding the landing, Andy’s ensuite and dressing room

Great for measuring…

And I can now use a circular saw! How invigorating. It’s been great measuring up the boards and working together, plus the best exercise ha!

Spot of gluing…

And a satisfying sweep!! Love a good tidy up

It’s so strange being able to stand on this part of the landing

And I love our velux window and central one…such great light!!

That’s us for another week…as we need more chipboard, but it shouldn’t stop the majority of the stud work next week and luckily the lead times aren’t too bad either. Worst case…we could always get some from B&Q ha!
