A month and a bit later and we're still going!
The loose floorboards have been a big hit - if you were to ask the boys to sit down and do a jigsaw, it will never happen, but the floorboard jigsaw puzzle they could do all day!
We decided to move the wall between the kitchen and hallway back a few inches to maximise on space, so the old wall was knocked down and a new one put in. This made for a lot of climbing through walls!
The boys still like helping out and their tools are always to hand!
Dan put up plasterboard to prepare for the plasterer and a friend Dean helped support the tricky ceiling boards.
I was finally allowed some input with the wallpaper stripping!
The chimney was timbered up then plasterboarded over - quite a fun puzzle making for Dan!
And today plastering is underway!
It will be interesting to see how it all looks in another month and a half - also whether we can face any more ready meals!!
