The builders are here

You
could probably hear my whoop of excitement from miles away. I did not think it would actually happen
especially when I saw the sunshine but they have turned up and serious building
jobs are taking place. Beams are being
whisked by crane into the house, chaos is reigning supreme with all the dust
and disorder, but in a good way as it means progress is finally being
made! It’s a full house so I am on tea
and biscuit duty for everyone. I also
might do a token spot of sweeping to look busy!!!

Most
of the house had been off limits because it needed work on it, the novelty for
the boys of sharing a room with their parents is starting to wear thin. They want their space to surround themselves
in their books, games and toys. Instead
of everything staying boxed up because there is no room on the floor to play.

We
bought a bigger house so we could have more bathrooms but we are still only
using one because we gutted the others. 
We are making a bigger bathroom, in our haste we knocked down a wall
that we then realised was quite vital! 
It had the water tank above it, so was pretty essential in the scheme of
things. So instead we are having a beam
take the weight off and then have the room plastered up and viola I can go
bathroom shopping at last! I am looking
forward to having a toilet upstairs again, as first thing in the morning it’s a
mad sprint to make it to the bathroom downstairs in time for my youngest! He would benefit from one slightly closer to
hand.

I
have been looking at lots of different websites including utopia to create my vision, think
stylish bathroom furniture to hide all the unsightly pipes associated with
bathrooms! I want a little bit more
luxury after surviving a few weeks without hot water, although having said that
I must not grumble my poor blogger friend Attachment Mummy has been without
hot water forever as the boiler is broke. 
I feel her pain; I struggled enough for a month.

Seeing
as our house is one big renovation project I am scouring the Internet for
tips! I think after reading this article
I should have a bigger contingency for the project, it is an old house so you
never know quite what you will find when you strip the walls or do further
work! Lets just hope the beams go in
nicely and our dream bathroom won’t be too far off.
