We are almost there. After a slight hiccup with the floorboards we are still moving forward.
The floor guy sanded and polished our second hand oak boards and the next day there were hundreds of little bumps on the boards. He told us that there was some kind of bug living in the floor (!) called Booras (or some spelling like that) that came out when the floors were polished. So they have to be buffed back and polished again! Lots of pics on the blog but here are some samplers!
Are we Crazy? yeah probably!

Do you mind me asking what colour your kitchen benchtop and doors are? I really like them and are similar to what I think we might end up with. I really love your facade and the arch in the hallway, it is very elegant.

I would also like to know what type of flooring you got! It looks great, from a far anyways. Hope it goes well with the second polish!
The house is looking lovely, i especially like all your built in robes!!
Idiots are fun, that's why there is one in every village!
