COMPLETION: utility room

    At time of writing the interior work is still ongoing but the utility room itself is finished. Next up will be the kitchen. We plan to do dark oak floorboards with under floor heating and a wood burning stove. Although it's going to be a lot of work, most of it will be in the original kitchen so the extension project feels pretty much complete.

    view of new boiler September 2010: The boiler is finally installed. The Worcester Bosch Highflow 550CDi is a condensing combi which gets very good reviews. The tumble dryer is from John Lewis.

    It has taken just over two years from breaking up the concrete drive to a glass of champagne by our Villeroy & Boch sink. At the end of any project you tend to only see the bits that aren't quite right. They nag you for a while but eventually you stop noticing and they just become part of the house. It's always important to know when to stop, to avoid unleashing chaos with a last unnecessary touch. As Voltaire put it "le mieux est l'ennemi du bien".
