The carpet was taken up on Tuesday, we covered what furniture we couldn't accommodate elsewhere with huge plastic sheets and the insulation that we had been storing in the car was carried up to the balcony.
Here's a reminder of how the doors looked from the loungeThey are out now
and the opening is enlarged but there is still more wall to come out. The extra view and the extra light make such a difference already, it's going to be fantastic
but for now the penthouse is full of dust and debris, things have to get worse before they get better.
The stand in joiner/engineer/husband has gone off for timber this morning, he was exactly sure what was needed until the stud work and threshold came out. Apparently it was all a bit of a bodge up but I have no doubt whatsoever that it will be perfect when he's finished and a big improvement structurally. I shall rest easy when I gaze out of the new doors, meantime when not providing the copious amount of coffee and biscuits working men need I am feeling a bit useless.
