What a week! 

Our new windows got fitted this week, no more rotten wood framed single glazing now we have lovely new sash upvc double glazed windows.   View from the kitchen shame about the scaffolding Our new master bedroom window 

The week started off with taking blinds and curtains down and pulling out our old falling apart utility room i also packed valuables away for safety. 

Thursday came and so did the window fitters i sent my husband off to work and the oldest two to school and emilia the cats and i hid upstairs out the way. With Mr S calling and texting what seemed like every 5 minutes checking up (it must of been killing him as he is a joiner/builder). WOW the guys worked none stop and got all 10 windows out and back in by 12.30 when i took emilia to nursery and they where complete finished by 3.30. They got the husband seal of approval when he got home. View without the scaffolding

We moved in to our house back in september 2015 and in that time we have ripped out the pink bathroom suit renewed the kitchen, and knocked down and rebuild a wall upstairs to make a extra bedroom, redecorate all the kids rooms and hall, stairs and landing. Pulled out the utility room and had windows replaced we have also started to strip back the old doors. It’s slowly starting to look like how we want it.  The windows have been the biggest scariest part we have done so far but after the the guys finished you would of never known they where here apart from the scaffolding and beautiful new windows. What a difference i was taking to a friend and said “i wasn’t aware of how much noise we where hearing until the now and i can’t hear it” and the warmth is amazing and to be able to enjoy our view without the constant condensation. This is the house from the sale brochure .Heres some of the work so far
