Today the plumbers arrived. Three arrived, they discussed options in a slightly argumentative way and then one left to do another job, leaving the other two to do most of the work. They were very noisy but got the job done. They left a mess, including a cracked bathroom tile, a wobbly paving stone (which was only laid the other day by the builders) and managed to kill some plants. But hey, we now have water and gas in the new kitchen.
Today was the most expensive day so far. And will need to get a decorator to patch up some walls too.
Copper pipes running under the front door threshold – need to de-wobble the paving stone though
Gas pipe running across the front. Once the sink drainage is added we can plant some evergreens to disguise
The copper arrived in the morning
Hot and cold running around the room, chased in here to make more space for the kitchen units

A mess in the en suite
