House update

Floors and tiling done.  We took up some plumbing fixtures we expect will be installed directly.  The oak floors are lovely.  They´ve had some swelling issues in the humidity, but we hope that will go away with better weather.

The lack of a wall between the shower and tub was a disappointment, but we´re hoping the glass shower enclosure will improve it.

Met with the plumber to discuss a thermal store and water heater for hot water and radiators.  We´re waiting for his proposal. 

Went to the builder´s warehouse and saw our wood cooker with a back boiler- and I´m glad to report that it is stunning.  But we forgot to take pictures.

Also met with the electrician and will presently be applying for the electrical service from Fenosa - fingers crossed!!

Onward and upward.


  1. It is looking great - how exciting for you as it draws nearing completion.

  2. It really is beautiful. But patience and money are running short and poor V is going to give himself an ulcer trying to engineer the move.

  3. Just try and enjoy the transition, stressful at times no doubt. It'll soon be a reality for you both.

  4. Looking great, you must be very pleased with it.

  5. Impressive! Just as you said, the oak floors look really great. Interesting bit on thermal store and water heater; what are your concerns on this? Is it where it would be placed, or the costs? You guys seem to be satisfied with much of the work; take it easy and don't get stressed out and everything will turn out fine. Cheers!

  6. It’s good to see this amazing progress. With the floors, tiling, and plumbing done, I assume you were pretty close to wrapping things up then. I hope the rest of the renovation and the move all went according to your plans. Have a nice day!

  7. Hey, Coco! How are things with the house nowadays? Judging from the photos, it seems like a lot of muscle and time was needed before you could settle in. I hope things turned out fine for you guys. Anyway, thanks for sharing this with us. Have a great day!
