I`m afraid the plans below are rather small - thanks Zaira for helping me get them to a size that even thinks about fitting!! but they will give you a general idea. Dave and Steve were sorting out levels yesterday. There is a large drop in floor levels from the sitting room to the bedroom beyond. There will be four steps down (one in the living area and three in the adjoining doorway). This is the next thing to be done - next week we hope - and floors in this area to be concreted too. All very exciting. Since we knocked the door through from living room to bedroom the whole place feels more like home.

All is going really well lately. Much of the flooring concreted, two walls almost gone and radon pumps in place....Next week we should be knocking out the door through to the bedroom beyond the sitting room. Floors either side of this will be concreted and then we will be looking up - to the roof which is going to be altered. As we have to have new tiles anyway (planning insisted) we are going to make sure that we can leave as many beams exposed as possible which means the insulation going above the beams and then the tiles above that. The trenches for the electricity and water will be dug later in the week I think. Keep watching!
