Sorry for the chunk, as I have been at work.
Saturday. Husband and his father got started with all the wall patching that needed to happen.
Sunday. Some floorboards needed replacing as they were rotten. Then after work I started on pulling out staples and nails from floorboards till blister (through leather gloves) and then I retired.
Monday. Nothing happened but I came home after work and after visiting my sister in law whom I haven’t seen in 2.5 years to pull out more staples from the floor boards. (Again, till blisters)
She has been overseas all this time working on yachts as a masseur to marine biologists and the like! She’s seen 22 countries in that time and now she’s finally met her niece!
Tuesday. 4 big holes were cut in the floor boards while the plumber got to work as well as the electrician. A lot of noise and dust was made. Double brick makes things a little complicated.
Backsplash, rangehood, oven and fridge power points
New sink hole location. Old on the right, where the green crate is.
No more lights
Audrey did manage some naps, but a good chunk of the day was spent consoling her and telling her that the noise was not to be feared.
I would have liked to escape but I’m not fond of leaving people in my house alone and I like keeping an eye on progress and be available to take questions or ask questions.
Today the floor tiles turned up!
Chinese natural split black slate
The cruel people packed them in so tight that I cannot pull out one let alone a few of them to lay them out on the floor to visualise.
. . . . .
Meanwhile, as the sun goes down, everyday. Audrey gets grumpy. I don’t know what it is. (Maybe she is waiting in anticipation for her Dad to come home, she misses him?)
Luckily this thing has been saving my caboose.
Check that face!
It is hideous and I swore blue murder that this contraption would never grace the interior of my abode, yet here it is. And in prime position.
Welcome eyesore, I love you!
HA HA HA
