There's been a little more plastering, a few more windows gone in but it still feels slow. We are still waiting on the biggest bit of the glazing which is the sliding doors at the end of the dining room and the two huge windows which are the same size in the master bedroom which will open up to expose the views and also expose us should anyone in the houses below care to look up! We've been told that these should both be in by the first week in March so patience patience.....

|The mess that is our house right now|
|Makeshift staircase & first layer of plaster|
|Spooky windowless kitchen/dining room|
|Plastering buckets in my kitchen|
|Looking up to part built mezzanine|
|Will's wonky picture makes our bedroom look like a tent - plastered note|
|Our lovely curve on staircase in spare bedroom <3|
|Strange angles in the spare bedroom|
|Slice of light over our roof|
Well, January 2014 is upon us and we should've had our first Christmas in our new house but it was not to be .... so, the roof is pretty much finished although the garage is yet to be built as we needed to keep the space available for access, and the plasterers are in. Here's a few pics of what's going on inside.

|Our last Christmas in Blean - Hurrah!!! (No wise cracks from anyone please)|
Crochet has kept me going through these last few months so here's a bit of that just to brighten things up a little
|A portaloo, nasty temporary door and a skip full of rubbish|
|Electricians putting in the first fix through the utility room|
|Archie & Greg came home for Christmas|
Starting to really look like a house now - the garage at the front is still to be added hence the strange blank look to the front view
Spotted from the Primary School on the road below ours - with it's pink felt hat on... this was very exciting as we hadn't seen it from this angle before
And here's some action shots of Will spraying the soffits and facias at the workshop. This was in an endeavour to save us money and speed things up on the build....sadly it was weeks before they went up!
