Running out of time now. The builder has to go by the end of the week and having been held up left, right and centre. So we are prioritizing what needs to be done and what can wait a bit.
Hubby spent Saturday removing the fake bricks from where the flue had been.

Today has been one of those days when something has gone wrong for everyone. The builder wasn't able to get all the slabs he wanted from one supplier, so had to go to one he doesn't like. He ordered them last Friday for delivery this morning and they arrived at 4pm!!

As you can see the slabs he had, have gone a long way to finishing everything off. Looking good!

The electrician arrived to connect all the electrics (obviously) then our trip switch blew, it took me, hubby and the electrician about 2 hours to find what the problem was, before he could carry on. We have a 'dicky' switch which will need sorting. We have problems like this all the time, something to do with living in an old house.

The Biomass boiler hidden by the new shed, which will house the hopper when it arrives from Ireland, this was ordered 3 weeks ago and I think is coming by rowboat!

The holes all filled in the wall, with any luck this should be plastered by the end of the week. Then I can paint it. The boxing in of the pipes and the sun tube will be done at a later date.

So it is all slowly coming together, I will be glad to get the house back and give it a good clean, it is covered in dust and everything seems gritty!

Meanwhile the jungle is growing well!
