The brickies finished on Monday and cleaned the place up on Tuesday. It now looks like a real house (except for the lack of roof!) and we have now got a feel for how high the ceilings really are. We are getting a couple of quotes for plastering and for the roof. We still hope to have a roof by Christmas but that is getting closer and closer so we may just miss out. Our new deadline is to be in by Easter next year. Cross your fingers for us!
