Living In A Building Site

This is what my kitchen looked like a week ago.

 It looks even worse now. There's no sink, no hob and no units.

There's also a big hole in the ceiling. I can see into the first floor!

The only room that is untouched is our bedroom. The only space to sit in our flat is on our bed. We just sleep and wash there and try to side-step the dust, stripped floors and imagine what it will be like in a month or so's time.

We're trying to be cheerful!

Evenings and weekends are spent at my parents' house which is where Fluffy Cat has been relocated too for the time being. My parents are loving their house guest, and the food there isn't half bad either.

For a short while our flat is just a house, it's not a home. I can't wait for it to be 'our home' once again!


  1. Oh gosh that looks horrendous! all for a good cause though I'm sure, it'll look great when it's all done!

  2. "Labor pains" of a remodel! The hole in the floor is a bit alarming, haha. Will it be done in time for Christmas? Just imagine decorating your newly remodeled home -- that will be bliss!

  3. No pain no gain. I bet it'll be worth it once it is all done.

  4. What are you having done? I need to reread...!! Hope it all gets done soon - sounds no fun as winter approaches! xxx

  5. Hmmm, that does look like its been ripped to the bare bones. But as Shannon has said 'labour pains' for the beautiful home that is about to emerge.
    I just hope Mr D upstairs isn't used to strutting his stuff around, naked. Could make for awkward neighbourly relations!

  6. Hold on in there. I'm sure it will all be worth it.
