A Crafty Tag and Reno Progress Report!

I'm having a "No-Builders" day today - well I am now anyway - the electrician did pop in first thing to do some bits he didn't have time foryesterday, but he was gone by 9am.
Thought I'd stick some progress pics on here now that the rooms are pretty much ready for the new stuff to be fitted when it arrives.
First photo shows the new hallway leading to our bedroom, there'll be room in this bit for a little set of shelves, hooks for dressing gowns etc. Malcolm the Plasterer has made a fabby job of the various arches we've added to take away the harshness of the bits of old outside walls which of course we couldn't remove or the roof would fall in! I love the new doors too, it's funny though, now all the other "new" doors they put on when the extension was originally built really offend me!
These 3 are of the new main bathroom. On the wall to the right of the window in the 1st photo there'll be a fitted unit with 2 sinks. Along the wall on the left of the window (pic2) the bath will go, and in the 3rd pic you can see where the loo and quadrant-shaped shower will be.

It's not easy to get photos of the new ensuite, but these are the best I can manage.
In the left section will be the fittend unit with the loo and sink, then through the new arch is the shower room. Our new shower will go right along that facing wall - it's going to be HUGE.
I'm so looking forward to not having to go downstairs to have a shower in a room with no heating - for goodness sake, who puts an extension on their house these days, puts in a downstairs shower room and doesn't think to put a radiator in there? All I can say is thank goodness the weather has stayed relatively mild while this work is being done!

And so on to this fun and crafty tag from the fabby, wonderfully talented Jo

1. If you could have 100.00 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
Got to be the paper - there's just sooooo much you can do with the stuff

2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rubons, which would you choose?
Oh crikey. I'm not much use with either. too hard!

3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year...which would you do?
Got to be cards. I've dabbled in scrapbooking but not got hooked (yet)

4. Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home...(can't have both he he he)
I'll have a really well-kitted out craft room please. A store sounds too much like hard work!

5. And last but not least, what is your CURRENT cardmaking or scrapping style....Now this can be tough to nail down!
er.....atm I'm loving making 3d flowers, and adding borders to my cards. I try not to get too carried away though because then I find it hard to make anything else!

Now I need to tag 5 more people...hhhmmmmm, who shall they be?
Ok, how about

Blimey Kathy, they seem to be getting on really well and pretty quick too (mind you, being in the midst of it as you are, you probably don't feel the same way!) Hope they finish off at the same speed as they've been working recently for you.

Beth said...

All the renovation work looks very promising indeed Kathy. Hope it's all finished soon, and you can get back to being dust free and tidy. Are you going to tag meeeeee, lol? XX

Hazel said...

At least now you can see the progress - you're right that the mild weather must have helped.

Looks like a good blank canvas to me Kathy - the next bit usually seems to go much faster, somehow!
