Renovations are in full swing and what used to be a kitchen is now floating around somewhere flatpacked and demolished…Paul has been super busy with his demolition job and although tiring and a lot of hard labour, he’s having a great time. I’m calling him demolition man at the moment….
The old cupboards that were falling apart are gone, the cracked old tiles : gone, the cracked plaster: gone ! and old crappy insulation : gone! and being replaced by new eco wool insulation that will do a very good job keeping us cool in summer and warm in winter.
New plaster is going on the walls and ceiling in early next week , painting will start after the walk in pantry has been built and the cement sheeting for the tiles has been put down and then …oh how exciting ! it’s all ready to house the new redgum wood cupboards!! I have seen a glimpse of these beauties and eventhough they are not finished yet: they look awesome !
Still a lot to do before all of that can happen , including dealing with some very nasty glue on our brick wall and the floor where part of the tiles were glued directly on the floorboards. Luckily it was just one spot, it could have been much worse. Paul probably wanted to use his new toy to drill all the tiles off, but unfortunately only a little work out was needed to get all the tiles neatly in a huge pile and into the skip !
The skip was big enough..largely due to the fabulous packing technique of Paul I must add!
In the meantime our fridge and cooker arrived, but they are offcourse still packed and waiting for the celebratory unwrapping when the tiles are in. Here are some photos of the renovation progress:
(I don’t know how I happen to catch that his arms actually look translucent in this photo! Amazing! Why haven’t I noticed before?…lol)
they are offcourse still in bits and pieces but you get the idea !
