One step back

So to make the house bigger, first we need to make it smaller.

Here's how we did it.

We need to build a new floor frame in the old living room at the back which will join onto the new stepped up floor in the new living area. Because of this step up, we wouldn't have been able to swing open the backdoor, so we had to move the whole doors closer to the kitchen.

So Dave build a new wall to sit the doors.

Then we removed the doors, (proved tricky because we couldn't find the secret screws hidden under the door runner strip of plastic) and moved them into the new wall.

Little miss Heidi thought it was great so ran to get the steps and started swinging.

So now it looks like this from the back.

We planned to get lots more done but Christmas plans got in the way. I think Hubby wants to dig the last hole tonight and put up some acrow props to support the walls.

Later folks,
