Kitchen Smashing

Not literally! ... well, I'm not, the builders are instead. No, this is just smashing our kitchen plans from the store.

My big smash book comes with lots of envelopes, which I just love. But I know me, I'd tuck something into one of them, and then forget what I'd put where. So I smashed the front of the envelope.

 
I did cut up a few of the extra plans they gave us. To be fair, the company were amazing as I knew what I wanted and they really listened and took note. You can just see behind I've started smashing a page for the bathroom. Need to finish it off before I can share.
 
There will be more kitchen smash pages to share with you, but I thought I'd get the ball rolling for now.
 
I also thought I'd share a few photos with you on how the building works are progressing ... the builders are really going full steam ahead and send me photos regularly. So here you are;
 
  
Foundations being poured
 
This is our kitchen and that wall will come down (its to the old bathroom)
 
I'm photographing Simon from what will be our new bathroom (brings a new meaning to open plan living)
 
An opening is being made bigger between two rooms

Under the stairs is being opened up too.  


Old Bathroom
What a great find
 
 Its all so exciting, and I can't wait each week to see what's been changed.  I know things will slow down as to big visual differences, but that's when things like electrics and plumbing take over.  I look forward to sharing more with you soon.
