Leaps & bounds

Starved of new photos for the last couple of weeks, I came back for the first time in seven weeks to big changes on-site. Extension structure complete, windows in, plastering finished, bathrooms laid out and painting started. There’s been a hiccup with the front door which I’ll cover when we’re out the other side, but all in all, things are shaping up nicely and the CDMS design is really starting to shine through.

The view from the hall (a little to the left of where the front door is). Features from right to left: double cupboard, doorway to shower room/studio, triple cupboard and door to utility…

Looking back the other way to the hall and front door. The scaffolding prevents a decent view of the windows for the time being, but we’re able to get an impression of how light the entrance will be now…

Moving into the extension, the shower room has been laid out with the recess for the mirrored cabinet (left) and shower  tray (right). The obscured glass window has now arrived…

The studio (we’ve decided ‘multi-purpose room’ is too much of a mouthful, and the light from East and West makes it beautifully light) with the picture window to the West…

A big trip to Ikea and the kitchen carcasses are now piled up around the ground floor, together with stacks of tiles for the bathrooms.  The front door is leant-up against the wall…

The snug, plastered and ready for shelves to be built on the far wall. The rope sticking out of the wall will allow cables to be run from the TV to the boxes in the corner (the fireplace isn’t staying)…

Downstairs and the tile backing boards are up in the bathrooms…

And finally, CDMS are happy for their sign to be displayed. Worth a cheeky family snap don’t you think?!

  1. Glad to see the smiles because I can imagine it’s been pretty stressful. All worth it in the end though, it’s going to be a fantastic home.
