Walk around at Christmas

Join me on a guided walk around of our ALMOST completed house.

6 videos take you on a guided tour of the current state of the house and were we are up to. The videos are 3min long (any longer and they wont up-load correctly.)

Has audio commentary.

Photo of the render colour differance from the back of the house were its more aparant. The 3rd render coat needs to go on to ‘level out’ the colours, however my SS needs aproval from his Manager before he can hand out the purchase order on this trade as it will involve re-scafolding the whole house and re rendering the whole place.

The garge took 20 bags of leverling compound to get it correct, the contractor was telling my SS and I that it normaly takes 8 bags.  But it looks great now! very happy and the royal blue carpet that will be installed will be on a level base.

  1. Love your blog! Have been a silent follower for months…Imdid comment on a few posts earlier, but the WordPress registration system below didn’t seem to work. I feel your pain….we ended our building saga with Porter Davis about 4 months back and have finally settled into our Bristol home. Unfortunately for us, from this stage, it took almost 4 months for handover, but I sincerely hope you will be settled in your new abode soon.

    Thanks a lot for your contribution to the building community. There is a wealth of information here. We do have some similar ideas, and it was like déjà vu reading through your past posts.

    Good luck on the rest of the journey and hope to see more pics and videos once you move in.

    1. Hi B, No we didnt, the concereate slab needed to be topped so the water ran away from the house and not towards it. Our Site Super orgernised it (with some prompting)


  2. OMG- just love love and love your Walk in Robe. Did PD offer you the variations or did you customized it. Are you able to tell the cost for your WIR layout? Thanks
    PS- loving your blog
