We're really seeing progress now, and it's exciting! The en-suite in the loft is almost finished - the new pipes outside need to be fitted, which means that nothing in the room actually works, but inside, all the fixtures and fittings (almost) are in place, so we can see the room - and I love it!
I'm thrilled with our bathroom up there. It's not a massive space, but I really think we've made the best of it. The shower is nearly a metre long, with a big rainfall head as well as a standard riser rail for when I don't want to wash my hair!
The controls are all outside so you can turn it on without getting a damp arm. The room's fully tiled in two shades of pale grey - I really couldn't be happier with the way it's turned out!
In contrast, we've not started the main house bathroom yet, so that will be the next big project - I've been talking to the plumber this week, and pretty much decided what I want - most of which has been ordered and will be delivered next week! Although we don't have a bath in the en-suite, I do like a good soak, especially when my joints are really sore, so I want to make sure the room is relaxing, and the bath is comfy! I've decided to go for a double ended bath, and instead of taps in the middle, it will fill from the overflow. I want it to be set in a tiled frame too, so I have somewhere to rest my book and a cup of tea or a glass of wine!
It's quite hard to imagine at the moment, but I'm really hoping we get a finish as fabulous as we have in the en-suite.
The updates seem to be coming thick and fast now - things are really moving, and I'm starting to believe we may be in within a few months. I can't wait!
