With the worst of the work completed on the “other side” and the builder waiting to do the step from the lounge to the new dining we (me, the little one, and the builder) made an executive decision to bring the wall down! The little one even helped with his matching drill and stance!

Let there be light! See that sun just bursting to get in? It came especially for this occasion (and hasn’t been seen since…).

See – gone already! At least it was enough to remember what our lounge used to be like!

And finally, looking into the new kitchen from the fireplace:

Rain, rain… go away… Let the sun shine in again!
