WOYWW #148

Not so much Whats on my Workdesk, as the view from my Workdesk today.
We are having a new roof, and this has also shown up some cracked brickwork between two floors.
So at some point soon, all the brickwork above my window has to come out, have a steel lintel put in, then re-bricked. Great. How much mess is that going to make?

 On the up side, we have also had the dormer window in our bedroom widened, and raised to a peaked roof, instead of a flat one.
This is a 'before' pic of our bedroom, which is on the attic level,and you can see the slope of the eaves either side, and the height of the ceiling over the widow. Beloved Husband has hit his head more times than I could count on that slope! He is also going to redo the built-in cupboards that were to the right of the window, and we have used the need to shift everything out to have a damned good clearout.

Having the dormer widened, and the ceiling raised was Hubbys idea, and I have to admit that its made a HUGE difference to the room.It looks, and feels, twice the size now.
This is what it has looked like.
 Work is still ongoing on the roof, but at least now we have some solid-ish covering. For three or four days, it was tarpaulin between us & the sky. I feel like I've spent the last week in a tent.

So not a lot happening desk-wise,(but you can see some new Tim dies I bought recently in the previous post) so its time for everyone to visit our Mistress of Ceremony's,
Julia Dunnit over at The Stamping Ground. Oh, and a big Thank You to Julia for my WOYWW badge I received last week. Its fabulous, and pinned to my handbag in the hope that one day it will be spotted by a co- WOYWWer.
Have a great Wednesday, this post took forever as Blogger didn't seem to want to post pictures today, so I had to try to upload them from my pc, wait for them to 'vanish' then upload them again from Picasa! Duh!!
 Have a great Wednesday everyone.

I know it feels as if the mess is huge at the moment, but your new room is going to be sooo much better when it's finished! You can tell already that it looks much bigger! Sorting out is good for the soul too :)

Oh Shaz, I do not envy your all that disruption, especially with the weather we have had last night and today. Hope none of the snow got in. With all that is going on, tell the technical department not to worry about our computer issues. Getting all your things back to normal is more important. I was very surprised to be a winner on Craft a Scene. Now I need to think of something for this month to have another go. Have a good Easter. xx Maggie #9

I've seen upheavals like that before. I lived through one. It always takes longer than you thought, too. And, once the dry wall is up, the room will look smaller. Not small, but smaller. Good luck with this project (and I use the word loosely). Happy Easter and happy WOYWW from # 6.

Once all the modifications are finished you will be thrilled. Lovely cards on your previous posts.

Karen said...

I had a roof put on last fall and it wasn't a lot of fun because the had to take everything off down the beams and build it backup...after getting the kitchen done and all the dust that goes with that I figure my house will never be dust free again. Hope you have a Happy Easter. Thanks for commenting on my blog. Vickie #60
