Here's a shot of what would become the kitchen, featuring my Mum and DC, on Tuesday the 2nd of August 2011. The walls and ceiling are freshly plasterd and shiney-bright. The floor leaves a little to be desired.
And here's the same space today, Thursday the 2nd of August 2012. Kitchen installed, walls and ceiling painted, lights fitted, oak flooring in place, temporary 'island unit' in situ.
And just round the corner in the living area, again featuring DC, on Tuesday 2nd August 2011. You can see the plaster drying on the far wall in this shot.
And the same space today, Thursday 2nd August 2012. Walls and ceiling are painted, lights are fitted and the entire contents of Toys'R'Us have been dumped in the room. Joy.
Same view today; looks a little tidier with the walls painted and the oak flooring fitted, not to mention some furniture and flowers (those are just a few of the Japanese anenomes that we hacked back this weekend.)
Here's a shot into the bathroom this time last year. Some nice electrical wires hanging from the ceiling and a hole in the wall awaiting the fan/vent thingy.
And here's a not-very-often-seen view of our bedroom, looking out from the far corner by the window towards the door. That's my mum and aunty having a look in and DC hanging around by the decorator's stuff probably wondering what mischief he can get up to.
And finally, the freshly plastered ceiling leading down from the third floor.
