Yay super excited

Yes I know it’s silly but I’ve been awaiting this for a few months now.

I gave up my craft room to house our now ‘adopted daughter’ who was going to be homeless and she’s disabled and suffers from ill health.

So we have been building a large conservatory so I can have more room. It’s been waterproof since last Christmas but just not completed. Left to do are, new floor, plastered walls and window seats with storage created and fitted.

Well there’s been a real hold up due to the flooring, not that it’s stopped me from using the conservatory as there’s a concrete floor just no under floor heating and finished tiled floor.

DH says the rest of the parts required for the floor are being delivered at the end of this month and the floor is being layed the first week of September

I can’t wait…

Doing the happy dance :smile:

I hope your daugher settles in nicely.
Very exciting about the conservatory. I used to live in a house that had one and it was lovely to get all the light in and hear the rain on the roof. That would make an awesome space to do some craft work.

Thank you :smile:

It gets very overheated in the sun even with the skylight, windows and French door open.

We had someone come the other day to give us a quote on blinds for the roof he quoted £5,000.

Wow, that’s a lot of money but I’m sure it’ll be worth it having a nice spot to work.
Too much heat is never bad news for me, especially here up north. :sunny:

It’s so lovely when you finally get your own workspace. Hope your daughter is settling in well.

Rather than blinds for the roof have you thought of installing an air conditioning unit. We have one in our conservatory (my craft room) and its brilliant, doubles up as a heater in winter too. You can get fairly inexpensive units (certainly less than £5k!) and they are fairly easy to install (my husband did ours and he’s not the best diyer!)
