Measuring up

The paperwork is still being drawn up, but we went to the cottage this weekend to measure up and take photos. I needed to see it again having only been there for 20 minutes for the first viewing. It was larger than I remembered - such a huge relief as I'd spent the last 4 weeks convincing myself that we were buying something not much bigger than our flat. The kitchen is proving to be a bit of a brain teaser - odd shape and oddly lacking in wall space. I think I need to build a mini version, a la Blue Peter, so that I can move bits and bobs around. 

Needless to say, I am in my element. Lots of ideas scribbled down and time spent on the websites of many a large diy store, working out costs and our plan of action. 

Number one on the list is to obviously get the keys...


  1. Keeping my fingers crossed. Funny isn't it that in 20 mins you just know when you first see a place!

  2. Looking forward to seeing the photos! Good luck

  3. Ha - I will be boring all with the progress of our project home. Some of the flooring is really quite something... ;)
