Settling in..

Apologies for the long delay in posting, and thanks to you for still regularly checking to see if I have updated yet. The unpacking was actually completed relatively quickly - it was done in less then 4 days, but what with our holiday, Frey's birthday and lack of internet connection at the house, it's just been very busy and a bit too hard to update any sooner.
Due to the government deciding to dramatically cut back solar power feed in tariffs, our hand was forced to get our 4kw system now rather then waiting a bit longer, so we scrambled to get that done and had it installed 2 weeks ago, just waiting for the paperwork to get finalised so we can start reaping the benefits. It's good that we had already done all the research and knew what we were getting and where we were getting it from, that saved us lots of time.
Stuart has started spreading out some of the dirt piles but there is still an awful lot to be done. Every time it dries out a little we get a downpour again which isn't helping matters. The 'lake' out the front of our window just keeps growing and growing.
The garage is finally cleaned out enough to fit both cars in, and we have even started organising the big shed, by building shelves and so on.
We finally got the home phone connected this week to....still to get internet yet though.
Anyway time for some more pics.

Dining furnished, lots of space

the path done before we moved in!


  1. Really interesting construction blog. As Professional, local builders in Torquay, South Devon and The South West" we would be proud to be associated with such high standards of wormkanship and materials.

  2. Some nice information on Building Design. From the images the design looks great. Good use of space and correct placement of furniture and good lighting is adding extra value to design.
