The work to the sitting room is just about complete (Paul is still working on the skirting board and boxing in ugly heating pipes). Some of you will perhaps prefer the original version of the room but the old gas fire needed updating and the deep pile cream carpet was stained and really not at all dog friendly.

The fire has been replaced with a sleek modern version that I can easily turn on with a remote control – a log fire at the touch of a button! No more dusty coals or wind howling down the chimney.
Paul did a fabulous job laying the wood flooring and we resurrected the Persian rug that had been dumped in the attic since we arrived here three years ago. I’m happy to see it again and I think it looks good against the timber floor.

There are still some finishing touches to make and I am also on the lookout for some new artwork to hang. The room has taken on a very different aspect and I am very pleased with the result.
