We were feeling great! Having the windows and doors completed represented a definite milestone. The focus could now shift on to the finishing trades, like plastering, painting, and of course the brickwork.
We were really pleased with the result of the joinery replacement. Being able to stand in the sliding doorway looking out, gave us a real sense of our vision coming to life. It was our closest sense yet of the feel of the living space that we were creating.
The black joinery looked fantastic against the stone!
With the surplus external doors also now framed up and gibbed, the whole interior was beginning to feel like the vision we had in our minds.
The work at this point had exceeded our expectations. We were feeling very excited, and also a little bit of disbelief that we were on the home straight.
There wasn’t a lot of time to enjoy this, as the bricklayers and plasterer would be up next, before painting and flooring would complete the renovation.
