Demiversary – Part 2 August 31, 2015 shortfield9 1 Comment Damp discovered and treated. Chris then plastered the walls ready for the stairs to be finally put in place. At last – the stairs have been positioned, a new landing created, electrics re-routed and put into conduits – all went like a dream. Health and Safety! The top of the original stairs very cleverly ‘roped off’ by Chris to prevent any falls into the space left by the removal of the original stairs. Various stages of the demolition process of the old stairs – very rewarding. More floor joists delivered by Barton Building Contractors. Chris quickly turned these into the base of our new floor upstairs (over the area that previously accommodated the original stairs). New hallway created – another step along the way. At last a level surface outside our bedroom door and a new landing from the top of the new stairs to join it. Another view of the new landing at the top of the new stairs and flooring to the third bedroom. Great fit, Chris, very professional! Elliot, the plasterer, finishing the ceiling of our new roof, fitted by the Phil Coppell group – we are delighted with this addition. The garden has continued to grow and produce not only a peaceful place to sit in but also scrumptious produce. It is not only the house that is changing. Of course not everything goes to plan – these are the ‘crop’ I have from my blueberry plants! They’d best be ‘superfoods’ as I only have three berries!! The allotment did much better as I was awarded two second places and a third for my jams and chutney. So thrilled. Having had such an exciting and busy 6 months we decided to reward ourselves with a day at the seaside – in fact three seasides: Bridlington for coffee, Filey for lunch and Scarborough for ice cream! Yorkshire outdid itself with beautiful sunshine all day. Over the last six months we have had plenty of visitors; regularly visited by the grandchildren who see this as another home from home, David and James with their friend, Heather were our first visitors in February this year followed by Lola and Ed, John and finally David and Christopher last Thursday – a flying visit but much appreciated.
