Day 3 only for phase 2, the building of the master bedroom, ensuite and small study.

Progress has been very quick in 3 days.  The balcony and huge vaulted ceiling has been removed, new beams for bedroom floor are in place and gap left for a staircase. Partitioning has started today.

Day 125 – Sunday 8th January 2017 – Phase 2

Lots of preparation for the start of the new extension.  We applied for planning permission and are now creating an upstairs area to the house. This will become a master bedroom and ensuite bathroom and a small study.  Downstairs in the large hallway which we have used as a sitting room, we would like a sun and TV room.
