Although the kitchen is nowhere near finished, the space is definitely beginning to resemble more of a room, as each day goes by. It doesn’t help that people who do building work, or plastering work or electrical work, seem to juggle a number of different jobs every day, out here. We rarely get a full day in, but that has its upsides – we don’t feel as if we have builders living with us, and luckily we have another room where we can cook. Although they do work very hard when here, it does however mean that progress is quite slow. But, it’s all swings and roundabouts – and it’s definitely not something we’re going to complain about, especially paying what we’re paying. Which softens the blow of slow progress, somewhat!

Today, we had progress. While the cement & concrete, holding the re-positioned well together outside, dries, the cills were formed. And even though they need to be finished, we can now get an idea of what our kitchen windows will eventually look like…

So, while work continues in the kitchen, we’re turning our thoughts to the next room which will be renovated. There are plenty of contenders for this, but we’ve decided the downstairs bathroom needs to be tackled as it’s pretty horrible, and leading straight off from the The Well Room, needs to have something pretty spectacular (although not with a spectacular budget) done. It’s very small, and like the upstairs bathroom, very poorly configured. In order to maximise space once in there, we’re going for a wet room approach – and this means the door, as is, which opens inwards, has to go. Sliding is what we’ve decided – a sliding door on the outside. What we can’t decide though is opaque reinforced glass or timber?

This configuration is almost exactly as the door could look...

Very French and chic…But with additional frosting, of course, if we went for something like this!

I think I have may made up my mind, but would be very interested to hear your thoughts. All have merits, all have disadvantages – and of course, sound insulation needs to be a big consideration! But, which would you go for?
