Not many days left till we move into Bwthyn y Plas and I am so excited I can hardly cope with it all. There's plenty of work left to do and it certainly won't be finished when we move in but the builders are coming back in the New Year to finish it off and then we can restart work on the hotel. By now I had hoped to have been able to take you on a tour of the finished cottage but, as I know from experience, my plans never work out as intended so I'll give you a quick tour of the kitchen and utility - avoiding the builders.
As you can see the kitchen has now been installed and we're just waiting for a false chimney breast to be built to house the extractor.
It looks a right mess at the moment, thanks to the builders, but it is a lovely handmade oak kitchen complete with oak worktop (which is currently covered with cardboard to protect it!). Below are a couple of pictures as it was just after installation before the cooker arrived.
We'll go on up into the utility room now - but try not to trip over the hoover.
This room is nearly complete - just needs a couple of cupboard doors, a few tiles and the washing machine and tumble dryer installing.
Well, unfortunately that's all I can show you at the moment as the rest of the place looks like a bomb's hit it. The builders finish work on Friday and I will then start cleaning it out and moving a few bits and pieces in. David has to work Christmas Eve so the day we're actually moving in is Christmas Day - and I really can't wait!
When we meet up again in the New Year hopefully it will look a lot different so all that's left now for me to say is Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd dda i chi!
