Build Day #40

IMG_2720Day 40 was a complete shut-in day, which means the cats had to stay in one room with me. It was also one of the first days that work actually had to be done in the room with us. Having re-arranged the furniture for P the plumber to change the radiator, Ruby discovered she could get into the top shelf of the bookcase.

IMG_2716It was also time to say goodbye to the top floor bathroom dormer window.

IMG_2741The bath is slowly taking a tour of the house. It began in the future en suite, then went into the master bedroom, was moved into the bathroom and now sits in Mark’s future study. It will be fitted eventually.
