So the time came when the builder was able to take out the second wall.
It feels strange to see this photograph of how the kitchen used to look.
The yellow that the previous owner of our home chose to paint the kitchen walls was revealed, when Hugo dismantled the kitchen units.
I was in the house when the wall came down.
There was a thunderous crashing thud........... and the whole house shook............... dramatic stuff.
There was a lull in my blogging last week, because suddenly everything got much more complicated with the build......... something we had not anticipated. We had to call in a structural engineer, and he gave us bad news based on how this old Georgian house was built. We're still waiting for the full report. The problem can be solved, we think, the bad thing is that the works will be held up untill we know what the next step is, when we get the structural report.
Hugo and I were outwardly very stoical about it all, but we felt as though the wind had been taken out of our sails.............. a side effect being that we both feel jaded and tired.
Never mind, in the grand scheme of things, this is a very little happening............ and builds are always unpredictable.............
