ONWARD AND UPWARD!

Phase two of the renovation work has most decidedly started. This is where my stairs where yesterday. Now they are in the skip. The two pillars in the foreground are destined for the same fate. Ah!!










And for anyone that might be the least bit envious, this is where Castle Bitch has been doing her washing for the last 17 months!

Oh no! - you must have the patience of a saint. I hate renovation work - even if it is all worth it in the end!

Patience of a saint? Moi? I think not Anne.

R&D - I'm envious of all that space in your washing room!

But not all the dust from the demolitions! I remember it well from when my old bungalow was altered by a mad architect and a mad builder.

Good for you Maggie. OG and I have lived with building projects all our married life. We start to feel withdrawals when our house is not disrupted. But each time I say "never again" and this time I mean it.

We have a new posh set of stairs in the newly renovated (Phase 1) part of the house Rosiero.

But having said that there was a time when we did a previous house renovation and the stair builder let us down so we had two ladders, one to go up and one to go down. That was fun.

Hi Doglover, you must be talking of the bungalow that OG and I renovated. Now I KNOW that I'm not the mad builder, so are you inferring that I'm a mad architect?
