Work In Progress

My apologies for not posting a card today! The workmen turned up a day earlier than planned so yesterday they started demolishing the monstrosity that was my old conservatory. Well to me it was more of a sun room as it was glass all the way down but we just used it for toy storage and for my boxes and bubble wrap! It was a bit damp in there and it needed to go!!!!!!!!
So anyway I have a few piccies to bore you with and I hope you will follow this journey with me from a teeny tiny box room craft room upstairs to a new studio!!!
Here is the dining area in our house! Now that table is not normally there, it is usually in the breakfast kitchen but we moved it for Evans party and havent moved it back yet. This room just used to have toys and PS2 in it! It is about 8 foot wide by 11 foot long and this is going to be my office area and it will have lots of storage for my stamps! The carpet is going on Monday and will be replaced with wooden flooring!
OK as you can see it leads to some patio doors which lead to the monstrosity!

Inside, all the wood was rotting and everything, the roof used to leak aswell! So this was Day 1 (Monday) when we had almost cleared it out!

This is what it looked like when the workmen left on Day 2 (Tuesday). They kindly boarded the patio doors up for me for extra security!

This picture will give you an idea of the new size, it will come out as far into the garden as the other one but it will come right across the kitchen window and will go from being 8ft x 8ft to being 8ft x 15ft.

And this is how they left it today on Day 3 (Wednesday)

TOmorrow they are coming to dig out the foundations!
Hope you havent been too bored with my photos!
I will hopefully post a card tomorrow!
