After many months of hard work, slog and toil, something huge has happened for us in this last week. Not only are all the dormers water-tight, sealed, guttered and clad in ColorCoat Urban, but the scaffolding has finally been taken down and reveals for the first time what’s actually been built! Until the moment the steel spiders web was finally gone, I’m not sure I’d fully appreciated how much I’d love it, but love it I do, and Mr M does too. He still can’t quite believe there are going to be five huge glass doors in that great big hole still in our house, and another two over to the right 🙂 I’m so happy that we opted for reclamation, saving all the old bricks and slates from our demolition last summer and using them and well sourced additions to create the ‘new’ build. I love the effect of the random colours to the brick walls, and the contemporary edge given the the design with the deep grey powder coated steel and Railings painted windows. You forget all the hard work when it gets to this stage…. well, almost 😉 Video: Only two more sleeps ’til the bifolding doors go in now, far more exciting than holiday sleeps I reckon. Spoken like a true self builder eh? Then I can finally get started inside!!
