Joe is now talking to the third electrician about an estimate to re-wire the project bungalow whilst I am awaiting a viewing from potential rental tenants. The letting agency advertised the tidy bungalow we are living in ('tidy' and us living here with two Labradors is perhaps a bit of a stretch but there you go..) on Tuesday and called me yesterday to arrange this viewing - quick work!
Meanwhile at the tatty bungalow, the first skip has been filled to the brim with detritus; there is now no bathroom, no kitchen, no carpets, no wallpaper, no curtains and no tiles on the walls. The new double glazing has just been measured and ordered and we are about to finalise our layout ideas for the refurbished kitchen and bathroom and get the units etc. ordered. So things are progressing, no hiatus yet.
