Renovating - Yes, it's still going on!

So, it is nearly Christmas and is my kitchen done? No. Is the plaster dust gone? Yes, is everything decorated? Yes, is there a fully functioning kitchen? sort of.

So for the last month I have been quite poorly. It started as a cold and ended up as acute bronchitis. This has been no fun at all, as sharing the house with builders whilst you are ill means that you lock yourself in your bedroom and watch stuff on the laptop which is downloadable... for example I'm a Celebrity ...which I have never watched before but now I am totally hooked. #hangsheadinshame. This is my excuse for lack of updates on project...completely redo downstairs.

Anyhoo,  last time I wrote this there had been no painting and the plastering and floor hadn't been finished - so here it is with plaster and the floor down.




With a nice clean floor

With the interlinking floor from stone to wood

And we have had paint on the walls, which is v. exciting



It was a little disappointing that the painter got paint all over the new floor (and I am still waiting for it to be cleaned up) but the floor is down and there is paint on the walls Yay! Please ignore the fridhe in the middle of the room.
And the kitchen now, painted (believe it or not the kitchen is a different colour to the living room - this picture shows the colours perfectly......I know!)

And the new utility 

 

Since these photo's were taken I have had some of the kitchen cabinets fitted, and since yesterday I have a sink with running water - hot and cold. We have been without taps downstairs for about 3 weeks, both daughters went and tested the taps the minute they got home from school, this is the highlight so far. I also now have some kitchen surface, which we haven't had for months. But, for now this is where we are. I will follow up on this soon, we are nearly there, and who knows, I might be able to get our stuff out of storage in the new year.
