Magnus has arrived (and been presented with a lemon cake to fuel him for the week) and the exterior is being totally transformed – it’s been power-washed to take all the dirt and lichen off and now the paint is going on. I suspect he’s teasing me by leaving the front until last, because I can’t WAIT to see what it looks like finished! Here are some pictures from Tuesday evening – he’s been back today, but the light was gone by the time I’d finished feeding the sheep.
David called today to see if he could bring the kitchen over tomorrow, so Mick took all the remaining paint down the road this evening and my first job tomorrow morning is to clear as much floor space in our annexe as possible. We have four base units (one of them a corner unit) and five wall units to fit in, plus a lot of worktop surface, so it’s going to be tight, but there’s a big pile of boxes I should be able to fit upstairs and I hope we’ll get it all in okay. He’s going to be carrying on with the framing on Monday and Tuesday and says Dougie will try to be there one of those days as well.
Finally,hello to anyone reading from Wreck of the Week where Sue has put up a post about a pair of cottages I spotted that I thought she might like and kindly linked to this blog. She’s a must-read for anyone looking for their own renovation project!
