We knew there would be a lot of mess and dust. This week the builders are in, taking out two sections of stud wall that partially divide our main, open-plan living area from the kitchen, which we are replacing and expanding. Before they arrived, we pushed all of our furniture to one end of the space and took the precaution of installing a polythene curtain across its width. Suffice to say, the shot above, which I took in the calm early morning just prior to the builders’ long-awaited arrival, belies the truth and is a gross misrepresentation of what was to follow.
Do you have any builder stories you’d like to share?
