I finished tearing down the wall yesterday and filled up the big bag with a good 1.5T of building rubbish. I already arranged for it to be taken away, so that should be done somewhere in the next week. If I have some spare time and weather permitting, I'll take out the last tiles and then think hard about how to proceed next, lol. Yeah, I admit that my actions are not always as planned out as I'd like, grin.
Since it was pretty rainy today I opted to do a couple of small things in the house such as watching two movies (Screamers and Kingdom) as well as a few episodes of Dharma & Greg. Totally helped me in the "get this house up to par" section :)
Nah, I also fixed the issue with my bed, took out an old heater that I don't plan on using any more and closed up the chimney it was attached to. If I can figure out how to get the foundations done in detail - I get as far as digging hole, putting in reinforcing wire and pouring concrete - then I hope to get that covered next weekend. Because... when that's taken care of and ready, I can start thinking about rebuilding things :)
Oh, if any readers of mine have recommendations for a company or person that can do roof construction, shoot me a mail, give me a call or whatever. I'd like to get a grasp of how much cash I'd have to dedicate to replacing the roof over the kitchen, build a new roof over the bathroom to be, have light tunnels installed and possible even make it a green roof (energy wise, but possibly also used as a garden/terrace). I'm starting to have the feeling that the lack of garden in this house may really become an issue in the long run. Sure enough, I could fix this up and then move again, but on the other hand, I sort of am starting to like the house and region I live now. it ain't perfect, but it'll do for a couple of years. Or rather... it must!
