Mortgage is about to go up .... again
The week has been pretty hectic for both John and I so last night after work we decided to check out the progress of the house to give us a good vibe to get us through the rest of the week.
Work done since last post is as follows:
- Brickwork under windows finished
- Kitchen, laundry & bathroom cupboards delivered
- Doors, skirtings and other bits delivered
- Front window 'dressing' (don't know what else to call it) fitted
- Downpipes fitted
Little things throughout the house continue to be done and I still get amazed at how much interest you take in the little things when you are building a house of your own. Never before have I been so interested in the way a powerpoint hole has been cut in the plaster, or how they have raked the mortar in brickwork!!
Only downer of this work being done is that we now expect an invoice in the mail tonight asking for the next instalment to be paid. Aaaah ... so the mortgage goes up ... again!
