When we moved into the house in June, we identified a number of things that we wanted to do (and could afford). Much has been done already, so I’ll try to go quickly through them.
1. Bathrooms. We started with one bathroom off the kitchen, and a toilet on the first floor. Our immediate plan was to split the converted loft into two rooms, a study and bedroom, and to build an extension for an ensuite facility – this to be above the existing extension into the barn, which gives part of the kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor and the master bedroom on the first floor. We ended up not doing that, as the size and shape on the top floor wasn’t really suitable – instead we had the bedroom, whose extension covered only about 70% of the first floor extension, further extended to give a bathroom and dressing room/wardrobe. This work is well under way. The building work is complete, we have laid flooring and painted the walls and ceilings. The between room is fitted out (see photo).
Electrics are due to be completed sometime in December, the plumbing work should be substantially completed within a few days, and the final step, door and steps from the bedroom, will happen either late in December or in January. At the same time, a shower cabinet is being fitted in the first floor toilet.
