This last week has involved some late nights and a very tired Kev. The end is in sight though.
He is, in fact, the guy that trained me to be a carpenter. We worked together for 5 years whilst I learnt the ability to earn a living from my hands. We had a great time working together and when I set off to work on my own he even sent me divorce papers through, as we used to joke that we spent far more time together than either of us did with our wives. I owe this man so much and yet he's always still helping me.
Unfortunately we didn't manage to finish putting the floor down as we run out of adhesive but I should get the rest down tomorrow night, as well as the step by the patio door.
I'm aiming to have it all finished by the weekend but that means this week I've got to stain the floor, clear oil it at least twice, fit all the skirting and architrave, fill it, paint it, get the bricks round the chimney rendered, paint the "feature wall", fit the stove, curtain poles, sockets connected - there still seems to be plenty to go at!
Hopefully I'll be back doing more smallholder type post soon and catching up on every ones blogs!
