The Carthouse ready for decorating!

Well the team have done a great job with the kitchen and bathroom in The Carthouse and today all that is left to do is screw a few sockets back into the kitchen walls now that the tiling is complete. The decorator is due later this week so the end is definately in sight. Hooray!

Cockle Cottage is not far behind and should be back to us by the end of this week, the wood for the lounge floor is happily seasoning itself, ready to be laid and Cockle too will need a complete paint job.

As a special bonus we have managed to fit wine racks in Cockle and The Carthouse kitchens – helpful for those of you that bring your own supplies.

The Dairy bathroom is now starting to be tiled and all those finishing touches in the kitchen will start to be done – pelmets. cornices, kickboards, door handles,etc. As we have used the old walk in wardrobe to increase the size of the bathroom we have to build a wardrobe and housemaids cupboard in the hallway as well.

The new plant room is nearly complete and the pressurised hot water system has been tested for leaks – none to report. All the electrics that zone areas are still to be done but its all scheduled in.

We are so confident now of being ready on time, we have brought forward the date for the removals firm to return the furniture!

We will try and get some new pictures up as quickly as we can so you can see for yourselves.
