Tv, Internet, Tv, Phone....

The order in which the builders have cut off our Virgin Media services over the last few days !.

Cables and diggers do not mix :-) ... still no phone at the moment but that should be sorted in the next 24hrs.

So... the latest updates ... hmmmm... where to start !

Corgi gas man came out... took one look at the gas and water pipes... they are old and too small for modern day gas boilers!... means we need a new water pipe laid from the stop cock and new gas pipe from the gas meter.

So... the "Nice to have drive" is now going to have to happen ... we can't afford hard standing but large pea shingle will do for a few years !.

Here is our water pipe trench (this is where our cable service also got cut off).



And new pipe work in the bathroom... its all gonna cost !... I knew I should have kept some spare wall tiles !.

Other shots...

Garden... sort of coming along ... might be a bit cold for turf now though....

Some doors in at the back of the house...

Pictures of the new "living area" (it's soooo small gahhh ! should have gone 13' not 10' out the back !)...


Dining room....

Dark utility area !...


Boiler turns up on Friday (fingers crossed ... I decided to save £300 quid by ordering it myself... if it turns up late I will have workers sat round doing bugger all... talk about stress !).

Kitchen turns up Monday.

No idea when the electrician turns up ! (It's the same guy who wired our loft conversion ... so we know he is good !... (Totally unplanned that one !)).

Walls start coming down on Monday too...brrr... could be cold for a few days!.

Still.... means take away meals for a few days !
