It's all go!

I've been so busy the last few days. We're having a new bathroom put in. We've been here for almost 6 years now and for...well... almost 6 years, Lloyd has really disliked our bathroom! I thought it was ok, actually, but as it neared the time to get the new one I couldn't wait to see the back of it either!
Anyway, last night the plumber took out the old fittings and today the builders demolished it! We're starting again from scratch. It's a little frightening!
We are very lucky, though, as we can move down to stay in  The Acorn as we are going to be bathroomless for a while - argh!! 
Anyway, yesterday it looked like this - kind of old.

Today it looks like this!! The whole room is like this.
Now I am not one of these people that thrives on house renovations, and it doesn't matter how wonderful the builders are - and ours are... totally wonderful and neat and tidy and just plain, lovely guys, but I find this stressful. Migraine inducing stressful. Roll on x amount of weeks! I say 'x' amount as we have no real clue how long it's going to take!


  1. Exciting! We did our bathroom about 7 years ago (that long?!) when we first moved in where we are now. I had to go and shower at the local gym for a few days though, we had nowhere to move out to. Can't wait to see it when it's done!

    Renovations are lots of fun, aren't they? Can't wait to see the new bathroom.

  3. Good luck hpoe it all goes well, look forward to seeing the new barthroom.

  4. I'm with you. Any kind of construction, inside or outside, makes me wonky. I like your tub.

  5. I'm sure it will all go wonderfully well and you will have a fabulous new bathroom in no time.

  6. Oh, I am jealous!
    I dearly would love a claw-foot tubby!

  7. Arrgh renovations! I feel a headache coming on too! :D

  8. Oh lucky you! I wish my bathroom looked as good as your before shots!!
    I've been waiting 8 years for a new one (it'll probably be another 8 years) Oh well, that's what I get for marrying a carpenter! Can't wait to see your new leu:)

  9. Lucky you Laura, no doubt it will be fabulous when finished!

  10. Oh dear! This is the kind of thing that sends me into the shakes...

    Blessings, Debbie
