What a difference a week makes

The old room

And the new

It's been a week since the last update, and since we last visited the house, the old outside wall has come down, instantly pretty much doubling the size of the room, and the steel beams have gone up, apparently not without a heavy dose of expletives. They did look pretty heavy when they were in the garden, and now they are forming the frame which is holding the house up, they look even more hefty. 

That's one big beam

The extension roof

Our builders are showing further signs of interesting artistry, this week convincingly tackling the auto-portrait genre.

The bathroom is also well on its way now. The shower is in place and tiled, and everything else has found its rightful place too. There should now only be a few more weeks before we can move back in.
