stage by stage...

the above photo was taken while standing at the window, the below one was taken standing near the archway.

it's madness really, trying to do stuff just before christmas, but this weather is crap for farmers so sam is making the most of it...after the builders pulled down the stud wall, the plasterer came and did the walls. these are now dry so sam's been undercoating...i snapped him a minute ago painting the ceiling! then i found these photos taken before we started, complete with red carpet and manky old sofa, thought it made a nice 'before & during'. the oak flooring arrived yesterday and we're hoping to have the dining room in operation on christmas day. and see the open fireplace with the concrete hearth? that's where the cat decided he was going to take a pee just after sam had levelled it out...
