On boxing day Nick and I went to visit the house thinking that it would be deserted and we could have a good look around – we were wrong. When we got there we found our contractor on the roof finishing off the shingling. I could not believe it. I cannot think of anyone in the UK who – unless they really had to- would work on boxing day.
As well as finishing off the roof this week we also had a delivery of windows and doors. Afer the windows were delivered the insulation was put onto the outside of the house on the front. This turned the front of the house blue. After this was secured the windows were put in. It made such a difference. It is starting to look more like a proper house from the outside now, I mean we have a front door 🙂
So that’s it for 2011. A huge amount of progress has been made on the house, and it has been very exciting to watch. See you in 2012.
