Week 46 – Site Progress plus more paint samples…

It’s been pretty quiet for, well pretty much a month or so! My fault of course ha!

Window dressings…

Oh…my….goodness…! There are so many of them, how have I never noticed this before ha ha! And yes, it may be a little early to be making these kind of decisions, however there is good reason. We were unsure as to whether our choices might determine how the rooms are plasterboarded, given that there are,Continue reading “Window dressings…”
