B-Day+258: It’s been a while…

…so we thought it was time for an update.

Christmas 2010 was successfully hosted in the new extension, with a good time had by all. After finally finishing the turkey we’ve been busy with various bits and pieces – it seems the little details are taking the longest.

Here’s a video showing the current state of affairs (click on “HD” in the bottom corner for better quality):

And some pictures:

And a picture of a delicious chicken pie we cooked in our new kitchen today, for Sunday lunch with The Mannings:

B-Day+218: Breakfast time!

We fitted out breakfast bar today – quite pleased with the results!

And if you’ve been paying very close attention you’ll noticed that we put the decor panels on the wall units, and painted another wall!

B-Day+215: More doors ‘n’ drawers

We fixed in the hob so could then do the pan drawers – also finished off a few more cupboard doors, adjusted hinges, etc…

The extractor hood is also partially fitted, although still needs to be finished off.

Then we actually unpacked some of our wedding gifts, now they have a home.

By the way, here’s a close up of the butt and scribe joint in the worktops:

B-Day+211: Worktop weekend!

This was a big weekend, we hired a router and worktop jig and set about slicing up the oak worktops – after a LOT of Youtube instructional videos!

Here’s work in progress – cutting the recesses for the worktop bolts:

Thankfully it went very well, the results are pretty good (we think).

Just waiting for the second coat of boiled linseed oil to dry before we put in the hob and sink…
