Things are happening on Albion! People who understand tools are building things I’ve asked them to build!
Here she is in the dry dock the other week, having her insides all nice and warmed up with spray foam.
The rest of the bedroom under the deck is taking shape and we now have a nice curved ceiling and wooden walls which will soon be joined by an insulated floor and some shelves for the keeping of important boat equipment.
It also has a hobbit hole for a bedroom door, which is great for shouting things like “”We don’t want any adventures here, thank you!”
The other big project is the bathroom, which we have decided to pretty much rip out and start afresh.
So far our builder has taken out the old shower tray to put a new one in…
…and chopped the top off this cupboard to make way for a sink (more on that another time).
Soon the bathroom will be decorated by these lovely, lovely tiles…
It’s all very exciting!
For example, did you know that mattresses cost more than one hundred pounds? Even at IKEA where you can get a lamb shank for £2.95.
Luckily Sweden did deliver on sofas, and we found this excellent one for £95.
Anyway, our builder reckons we can move on in about a week and a half but until then there are a million other little jobs that need doing so we’ll be back and forth with our NEW TOOL KIT…
… so that Ed can get on with lots of DIY and I can get on with putting pictures of it on the internet.
More updates soon but I’ll leave you with this picture of Mother Nature just loving the hell out of us and our new boat.
