This man is a builder so I can't show you his face, but suffice to say I reckon most of you can name him just by the clothes he's wearing, after all he's worn them in most, if not all of the photos ever published of him on this blog. However, the really worrying part is that I don't ever recall seeing them appear in the laundry for a wash since he started our renovations over 3 years ago!
As you can see progress is slowly being made on the Bathroom From Hell. This pic was taken about 3 weeks ago & the new concrete floor was laid, but has struggled to cure well in the freezing cold weather we've had since. This particular builder has been very slack since the floor went down, citing a sick wife & a million other clients demanding he work on their projects not his own. But he has managed to get the window frame in, but no glass as yet, & the frame for the blueboard is almost complete.
All the new pipework has been done & Russell the Plumber & his extended family are currently holidaying in luxury on the Amalfi coast on the proceeds of his 1.5 days work here! All the bathroom fittings are lying in their boxes in our entry hall, the tiles are piled high on a pallet on the front porch, the bathrooom cabinet has been designed & I had to provide the boys with templates of the basin & swish mixer as they were cutting the caesar stone for it today. Oh & the builder & I are still having to share the dodgy en-suite, which has really taken the very last vestiges of romance from the relationship!
