Happy Easter one and all, Really sorry for the delay in up dating the thread, things not moved a great deal but i have attached some new photo's of the progress...

All the lighting is up and running in all rooms, fans have been finished this weekend, porch lights also finished today and i have put these on a PIR to make life easier when carrying things from the car and trying to find the keys in the dark etc...

The en suite has moved along a little with the vanity unit now in place with the sink and toilet due to be fixed shortly..

I have also purchased the towel radiator today for the en suite.

The Shower cubicle is also purchased i just need to get the tiles bought and the tiler on the job,sharpish to keep things moving...

Other things on the go is the front drive that i am looking at getting block paved and also the decking for the rear so we can in the garden as the drop is around 5 foot currently, will have to see what the prices come back in like,obviously as you can imagine the bill is well on its way up and we are not far away from finishing but the cash is running out fast now.... :lol: :lol:

Here we go the photo's what we all like to see :thumbright:

I will try and keep the tread up to date a little more often now things have started moving again :huray:

Thanks for watching...

I was going to lose it up there but my en suite bedroom is straight above so other pipe work up there, plus as you can see in the left corner of that picture the soil stack has to come down and be connected up yet, so sadly ran out of space above...

Have you seen the white plastic square ducting you can get, does look better than that expanding stuff, and you can paint it the blend in, bit more expensive tho? just a idea mate, you doing a good job!

Morning All

Progress update, the en suite is now complete minus the flooring which is ordered, the master bedroom is now carpeted and I am awaiting the carpets for rear bedroom as it is out of stock.

I am now underway with the driveway as I am fed up of walking in mud, well it has been going on now for 15 months...I am doing this in block paving and it should be finished in the next couple of days.

Photos to follow of all up dates above.

95% completed now, decking to rear, downstairs WC to pick and fit, porch flooring to choose and fit, then more painting and carpets to existing house to correct damage from the extension...

Thanks

As always, a great looking job :)

Progress is slow, but you're saving some big bucks by doing it yourself!

Cheers

Matt :thumbleft:

Great thread, planning a similar extention of my own.

Could you let me know what the actual width of the extention is? Specifically the width from the original exterior wall of your house to the current exterior wall of your extention? It is very hard to judge it from the pictures alone, but I am trying to gauge it against the width down the side of my own property.

Apologies if you mentioned this already but I cannot seem to see it in the thread thus far.
