To be fair, we brought it upon ourselves.
The farmhouse is Victorian, built with no storage anywhere inside as in those days they liked to have everything on display. At some point in the past, someone built a little utility room onto the side of the house, which helped a bit, but not enough.
It was a bit like a corridor, with appliances both sides, and I could never understand why it didn’t come out flush with the house wall at the back.
So that’s what we are currently doing – adding another 2m to the width, to include a dog room with benches and heat lamps (lucky doggies), a small WC with a low level butler sink with shower over (also for doggies), and a separate laundry room, along with a porch on the front.
Plus cupboards, wardrobes and shoe racks – bliss!
But noisy, very noisy at the moment.
2 days later the foundations were concreted
Two weeks in, with an estimated 10 or 11 to go, the new floor is down, and the exciting stuff begins next!
And this, while I am writing two books…
Ah well, it’ll be worth it in the end!
