We have carpets!!
I can’t even begin to tell you how much this excites me. The difference carpets makes is amazing. It is actually starting to look more and more like a home rather than an ongoing project now.
We have also had the rest of our bathroom fitted so we finally have a working bath toilet and sink!! We haven’t done anything with the bathroom as of yet apart from completely tear up and relay the floor boards, fix a leak and change the bath toilet and sink. We’re hoping to re tile it later on in the summer so for now we’ve just got the broken tiles that was here when we bought the house and an off cut of carpet to line the floor.
Whilst the carpet fitters were fitting our carpet, I took the opportunity to start tacking the garden and all the over grown half dead trees that are scattered through out our garden. I managed to tear down two trees (just leaving a stump) with my bare hands and a crappy pair of securters from Poundland. Just by taking out these little trees, it has already opened up the end of the garden a lot.
Unfortunately the carpet fitters can broke down the morning of our fitting so we had to wait for another fitter to be free to come to us so they could only fit the rooms to start so we’ve had to wait until the end of the week to get the stairs and landing fitter.
Now that the carpet is in, we can finally start bringing over some of our furniture and building the smaller bits here getting it ready to move in. We’re hoping we will be in by next week so going to try and bring things over in stages rather than all at once.
This bit has by far been my favourite stage. We’ve started making it look and feel like a home and the end is in sight. I just can’t wait to move in and be living here now!!
The next update will most likely be one saying we’re in!!! So if any of you have any tips and tricks for moving they would be greatly appreciated.
