Studo Conversion Day 1 – We’re Off…!!!

 Yes – the time has finally arrived and work started on Studio THEA today which is great as I was beginning to think I was dreaming it all! Nothing very interesting to show at this point though. This is how things looked when I woke up at the crack of dawn – Christmas has nothing on this you know…

 And this is how it looks at the end of the day…

Much the same but with some tools I hear you say. Well, yes but there has definitely been some activity – I know because my ears are still ringing from the pneumatic drilling that made the entire house shake. The cat has taken refuge in a padded cell in the wardrobe and I might just join her if there’s any more of it to come! As a result of all that drilling we now have the footing for the new wall…

And a big bag of waste – not the last I’m sure.

I was quite surprised when the electrician turned up but is seems he has a busy week so we had to grab him while we could even if it was day one – no argument from me as there’s nothing worse than coming to a halt because you’re waiting on a specialist. Consequently there are also now lots of holes in the ceiling (more drilling!) and lots of cables waiting to be run behind plaster board and under floors.

So as you can see we are well and truly underway – the bricks are coming tomorrow and the window arrives on Thursday and then it will begin to look like something is happening. It won’t start to look like a studio until well into next week but I will post regularly to show you what’s going on. I’ll also set up a dedicated blog page so that all the posts can be read together.

OK – I’m off to remove a film of dust from the kitchen so I can prepare an edible dinner!

Back soon.
