It’s been a while since I’ve updated you about the cottage. Purely because everything has been at a standstill! But this week it feels like lots is happening 🙂

I was with a client on Monday and when I came back the roofers were putting up the wall plates. To say I was excited would be an understatment! So when I arrived home on Tuesday to see some roof structure I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face 🙂

I know it’s only small steps but once the roof is on we can start installing the windows and doors. Then we can get to work on the interior, with plaster boards, electrics and plumbing. Then onto the good stuff 😉

It’s safe to say I don’t have a head for heights. I feel nauseous descending a stairs! So I was pretty proud of myself for climbing the scaffolding to get these snaps. The dismount was slightly less graceful 😕

We may have been waiting a while for the work to start but I think that’s some serious progress in two days!

Hopefully I’ll be updating you with more progress really soon 🙂
