Not that I've been anywhere, really, just too busy to post.
Just hover over the images to see what I've been up to!
The front of the house before I got going on it!
The last week I've been painting the front of a friend's house. I don't normally do this high 'cause I don't have a ladder big enough, but they're neighbours of my mum's and she has a huge ladder, so up I went. Apparently mum has a piccie of me up on high- the temptation to speak to the teenage litterbugs passing by and then duck out of sight behind the top of the parapet was almost irresistible!
I've also been repainting a whole flat- which was empty between tenants. Lovely, no problem leaving paint wet, dustsheets or other gear around, or rollers drying in the kitchen sink. The carpets were being replaced too, so no problem if I dripped (paint, that is!).
The current job I'm in is ripping out a shower and sink, and moving a loo. This is in order to put a new shower in the corner, with a tinsy sink next to it, and the loo the other side. There'll be a stud wall across what used to be the shower room, with the new little, sorry compact shower room one side and part of the kitchen moved into the other. It's still a work in progress, but it'll look fab when it's done. The shower's finished, and I'll get a pic tomorrow.
On the left is where the new shower now is. In the middle is where the shower used to be. That wall's going to be knocked out so that this part of the conservatory becomes part of the kitchen. To the left of the pic under the light, you can just see the side of the window that's in the right hand picture. In the third pic it's viewed from the other side (from in the kitchen). That's coming out. Some of it will be bricked up to form a support for the lintel that'll need to go in where the wall's coming out. Don't want the ceiling falling in, do we? Makes a right mess!
I'll do my best to post progress reports.
