Things are starting to pick up with the build and this week the electrician has been in working with Rick and the wiring is almost finished. These two have been working in the snow and it’s really cold up at the house, so it’s medals all round to these hardy men!
The plumbers have got as far as they can and hopefully the builders are coming back next week to finish the next phase, which is putting in window frames and doing the internal render.
We also have a finish date – ‘yeee harrr’!!
It could be two months if everything gets done on time. Depending on the weather for drying times of plaster, paint etc., but this date may extend to three months depending on these factors!
I’m just happy and keep that date in my mind!! Soon all the fun stuff starts of putting it all together and for that I can’t wait!
The floor tiles have now been made and we are waiting for them to be delivered to our supplier.
As you can see we have chosen a soft grey neutral palette.
We have decided to use one tile for all of the upstairs areas and a different tile for all of the downstairs areas, to keep a sense of flow and openess to the spaces.
The upstairs floor tiles are pale grey and are called ‘Mia’. They are made from porcelain but have the look of concrete.
The format that we are using is a large square 60cm x 60cm layed in a regular pattern, (not brick or diagional pattern which is very popular here)!
The downstairs tile is called ‘Forward’ and is a textured tile that looks like natural stone but is also made from porcelain. So these tiles are really strong and hardwearing.
We are also going for the large 60cm x 60cm format, laid in a square pattern.

The downstairs tile comes in a few designs, to replicate the look of natural stone.
This is the fireplace tile which is made of quartzite slate. The mixture of colours and textures makes it a beautiful finish!
Choices of bathroom wall and floor tiles coming soon!
