An end to floors… oh thank god!

Over the last 2 weekends, Dad and I have toiled ceaselessly to fit the last of the massive 61 square meters of wooden flooring to the house – this time in the downstairs living room, dining room and study. We also ripped out all the old skirtingboards and fitted new ones (boxing off radiator pipes as we went) and smashed out the old, ugly fireplace. Hard, dirty work but it looks so much better in here now. Only the a new fireplace and fire to replace and then we can decorate the rooms ready for new furniture – I can see the end of the extension in sight 🙂

Popover to my old gallery and take a looksee – and weep with me as I bid farewell to our old, comfy (if ugly) settee… goodbye old friend 😦

    I just wonder if you’re Dad ever stops and says “put that bloody camera down and give us a hand here”?

    LOL Jac – sorry, but I ain’t selling and I ain’t moving. If I did, I’d have to do all this again!

    Wow – that’s looking lovely! I bet you can’t wait to finish the decorating. Then you’ll be all snug as a bug in a rug.

    Or as snug as a slug in a brick. Before someone comes along and splatters you every which way..
