It's about time........

I showed you the progress of the loft conversion. Warning this is a photo heavy post! We are currently 3 wks in! The back of our house started like this, minus the scaffolding of course!
This is the view from the bottom of our stairs straight up into the loft and yes it still looks like this now!
This is my builders wrecking my roof lol! And yes wrecking my conservatory underneath when they dropped a roof tile! All will be fixed in the end.
Here is the massive hole they created whilst wishing the rain would keep away! Have you spotted my lack of chimney yet? Yep that went the week before, note the TV ariel stuck to the scaffolding lol!
This is my miniature tent! It sounded like that during the night as the wind blew around the tarpaulin, its over the partially built dorma frame here and it was cold (remember the hole to the roof?!)
This is what it looked like today. Dorma mostly built and reinforced inside. There is felt on the roof here and waterproofing to the sides.
This is the inside, taken tonight (I'm up a ladder!) note hubby trying to figure out the plans unsuccessfully I might add! Still lots to be done but its getting there I may even have stairs in just over a week!
Thats all the progress for now, can't wait to see the finished product although I will oddly miss my builders they have sort of become part of the fixtures over the last few wks!
Thanks for popping by to look! Hugs
