This week definitely had it's ups and downs. The paint went on inside, two coats of Linen Wash by Little Greene which looks really nice. I'm very pleased with my choice and can't wait to see how this looks in the dining room too. The bathroom plumbing is all working (despite some very fiddly pipework!) And the electrics are also all functioning.
The cladding was put up on one side of the garden room while I was at work. I came back expecting Kentish cottage style clapboard cladding. I was greeted by the sight of 1960s static caravan style cladding; not exactly what I had in mind! After some discussion, our builder replaced it with the rustic plank cladding we had initially talked about which look a million times better. These will be painted an off-white colour along with the window frames.
It's quite difficult to take a good photo of the bathroom. The toilet is out of shot to the left. We decided to use Wet Wall panels in the shower alcove rather than tiles as it is much easier to keep clean and maintain. I'm hoping that the Fired Earth tile floor and sink splash back as well as the reclaimed bathroom door will add a bit more character to the bathroom. We'll also be having a cupboard built under the sink to cover up the pipes and to add a bit of storage.
