Although a little delayed our house in Montemboeuf has finally started to go up. Tom and I are both disappointed that we can not be there to see the beginning of the process as we had both been looking forward to this part of the build. Fortunately, our timber frame company have sent us some photos of the progress – and it all seems to be happening very fast!
Our soon to be neigbours have also been kind enough to take a few as well, so at least we will have an idea as to how things are going. Sadly we will no longer be watertight for Christmas, but at least they have made a start and when we get back in January we will see more of the house being erected.
It has been great to see Tom’s designs finally ‘in the flesh’ (almost). I am also pleased to see that my portrait window in the bathroom made it to the cut of the final designs! I also can’t believe how big some of the windows and doors look. On the drawings it was hard to tell the scale of things, but seeing these images you really get the sense of how great the doors will look once finished. We are both so eager to get out there and see it for real now.
