Trailer Park Boys comes to Yarkhill

16 03 2011

Well Katie and I have come to the decision that we should site a static caravan at the cottage in Yarkhill, and rent out our house in Bishops Frome. Hopefully this will speed up the process of finishing the renovation work at the cottage. Found a few on eBay but transportation could be an issue. Katie is going to visit the caravan place at the top of Fromes Hill tomorrow.

Well I got my hands on a orange San Francisco yesterday. Needless to say it is now unlocked, rooted and has a custom rom. Just installed the WordPress app, so I might actually get around to blogging a bit more!

Cottage Plans.

I meant to post these ages ago, but at last here they are.

We’ve not followed them exactly, as the upstairs measurements are wrong and would have resulted in walls going through windows!

Also worth mentioning that the room labled ‘Dining’ will in fact be the kids playroom.

The Utility room now has a door instead of a Window, and there is a laundry cupboard near the bedroom with the chimney stack.

Well it’s been a busy few weeks at the cottage, but I feel things are really starting to move along now. I’ve had a few friends and family lend a hand, which has really helped. Many thanks guys, you know who you are!

So back to the Cottage, structurally most of the hard work has now been done.

Extension roof

The rear extension has been built, roof is on (but not tiled yet!), concrete floor is down but we are still waiting on doors and windows.

Most of the first fix re-wiring has been done, but we are waiting on E-On to move the power-supply. Until they have done this there is one internal (that used to be external) wall that cannot be knocked down, and the roof to the new extension cannot be complete.

This week, much like last I will be concentrating on the stud partitioning and battening out the exterior walls reading for insulating and plater-boarding.
