Tuesday - day eight - the builders were digging under the house so, although they were working, no noticeable progress was made.
Wednesday - they took the day off (that is, they worked elsewhere on another job for the day). Steve and I went shopping for things for our new bathroom. We bought a shower (we've gone with normal shower base rather than a wet floor), a bath (I'm thrilled to say that, as opposed to our current miniscule bath, this is one that actually fits an adult human inside - I checked by sitting in it of course!) and two toilets. I know that's not terribly exciting, but the part when the girl in the shop told us she could knock $800 off the price definitely was.
Thursday - day nine - they worked half a day due to bad weather, and they put down some flooring on top of the sub-floor (floorboards will be laid on top of that later).
Friday - day ten - I went out at lunch time and returned home after dinner. When I left, they were measuring out the rooms and drawing it all up on the floor. When I arrived home that night, I was amazed to see...
In Abbey's new bedroom!
A FRAME! (Or at least the beginning of it.) We spent some time out there this morning walking through it - there's Abbey's new room, the new bathroom, the spare room, that's where the new front door will be...
Now that is progress!
