So here are a few pics with captions on what has been going on the last few weeks.
Kárí the plumber has been and removed the radiators that were in the wrong positions
installed some of the plumbing for a completely new bathroom
and positioned a new heated towel rail in what was the existing bathroom.
This beam was moved from here
When door frames were removed temporary braces were needed to support the ceiling,
all the new beams were in.
As I said before there has been a lot of work and energy expended on the floor...grinding and filling.
but there is still a way to go before the floor is fully restored.
Originally when the plans where drawn up we decided to leave the pillar between these two doorways (trying to save money), of course on the paper plans it just looks like a small inconspicuous black dash but in reality it obstructs the flow of the space. So now this pillar is earmarked for removal and to be replaced with a beam across the ceiling.
And this is what it looks like outside my window today!
