Hello all! I thought I’d start a personal thread as a log of our progress with our building works.
Please let me know if it is inappropriate, or of no interest, I can simply let it slide down the pages out of sight. If it seems to be of any interest I’ll update it every so often.
It’s all to do with making our dear old Edwardian semi a bit less of an obstacle course for me, and today is D-day. The builders arrived at 7.58 am having said they’d be here at 8. That’s a good start! They are now stripping out all the lovely old joinery around the door frames where we are having wider doors put in. Most of the new doors will be sliding doors so they are easier for me to open in my wheelchair, and will take up less space in the rooms.
Another good sign is that they are proposing to put down some cheap vinyl flooring where they have to strip back to floorboards, to make my journey to the loo easier on the rolling rota stand device we use. Very thoughtful, and an encouraging sign that they understand the potential difficulties I might face while they are working.
And the cats don’t seem too freaked out yet either! All round result, so far.
