Skywatch viewers my picture is at the bottom of this loft conversion update.
The point of no return is the point we are now at. After an almost 2 week break whilst the staircase was built the builders were back this week.
Tuesday saw the worst day for mess. They knocked out part of a wall and some of the boys' bedroom ceiling to make way for the turn of the stairs.
This is what is looked like before they started.
and after the work on tuesday
and after wednesday (not same angle)
these are all the 100+ year old very local bricks they removed. I was quite fancying some of them to stand my plant pots on and to smash up for rubble to put in the bottom of them for drainage but alas they took them away yesterday.
This is the stud wall that they made before their little break that I have shown you before
and this is what it now looks like after yesterdays staircase insertion
I was officially allowed a viewing yesterday before they went home. The tape went up afterwards to stop the kids going up they said.
I was told I needed imagination but to be honest I can kind of see how it will come together. Not very big but big enough. The other side of the staircase is very low headroom but will be fantastic for storage. I've given up on the craft room idea.
and since it is thursday here is skywatch. It's a picture I took on monday using my phone so the quality is a bit rubbish. We took a walk to the local car boot sale but went the scenic route and ended up walking past a local cemetery. These blossom trees instantly caught my eye and I couldn't resist snapping them. I felt a bit disrespectful taking a picture of a graveyard though even if it was through a fence.
Edited To Add: a car boot sale is where people take their old items they no longer want and sell them from their car boots (trunks) usually in a big field with lots of other people on a specified day which is generally a bank holiday.
tomorrow (fingers very crossed) I am hoping there will be some knitting content.
