....but first a very small stitching finish, the November block of Lizzie Kate Stamp.
I let the pictures show how we progressed with the renovations. Last week was mainly removing all the old stuff out of the living room and the office room(with the window). Nobody knows when was the last time this was renovated, i mean the basement floor. Kees parents bought it year 1958, and hubby bought it from them year 1990. A couple of newspaper print that we found from the wall going upstairs dated 1912, that was probably the last time they've added the upstair's bedrooms. It is a pity thereś no pictures at all from then.
Also came across some old tiles probably more than 100 years old. I haven't clean any yet, perhaps i can find a date or any indication when they were made. We haven't taken all out as they were quite deep and we are really in a hurry to get the place ready last monday for the contractors.
Monday, the contrators remove the dividing wall so it is now a big living room.
Tuesday, was ready to filled in with sand, styrofoam and reinforcing bars.
This morning was the concrete floor was done for the living room.
A coule of days to dry and then they'll get forward to work on the wallings.
...while we are going to work on the next room, that was the barn but we would like to turn that into a bedroom. Had to remove the old concrete as we would like to put an underfloor heating like the rest later on. We aren't done yet as after this one we would like to expand the kitchen too and put an underfloor heating. Ohhh, and not to forget upstairs...but that will have to wait for next summer!
Thank you everyone for all the lovely comments on my last post. All are very much appreciated.
