Flooring decided..

We were so undecided as to what to have in the open plan kitchen area at the back of the house for the longest time.

Week 26 and 27 – Site Progress!

Glass decided…finally!

It was so refreshing to have movement on site again and less fixation on scaffolding! Week 18 saw block and brickwork at first floor level and some stone heads at the back of the house. So very pleased we have gone with the Portland Stone! It looks fabulous! Week 19 will see more brickwork aroundContinue reading “Week 18 – Site Progress!”
