Bigga Badda Beam

Saturday! The builders are away so the kids will play!

The purpose is to make even more holes in the walls, to uncover any timbers and lintels above windows and doors. We knew there was a big beam at the top of the stairs as we had already made a hole (it had been boxed in many years ago), but we didn’t know how much of a beautiful timber it would be.

  1. I’ve just sat and read this all before work and now I’m late! I only meant to have a quick look. Looks amazing cannot wait to see it. Cannot believe they covered over the shelves!

    1. Haha sorry to make you late for work! Come over and take a look, you will love it! Equally I want to see your nice new extension. I may cycle past one day soon xx
