After a couple of years of planning, work has now started on Adam’s ground floor bedroom. We are having our integral garage converted meaning there is quite a bit of work to be done. The garage door will be bricked up and a window added. Then access via a door from the hallway will be made and a wet room needs to be added to the rear of the garage. We also require a ceiling track hoist so as Adam gets bigger we can easily transfer him from his bed to his shower /wheelchair without breaking our backs!!!
We have decided to have some other alterations done to the house at the same time, get all the disruption out of the way in one hit. These include knocking the wall between the kitchen and dining room down to make a larger open plan area including a new kitchen. Installation of a a new combi boiler, dropping the step into the conservatory to give Adam access and also building the front porch up to make an enclosed area to store pushchairs etc.
While the build work takes place we have moved out. Kerry’s parents have kindly agreed to put us up, so we’ve taken over their house for a period of at least 6 weeks. Do they know what they’ve let themselves in for??
We will try to post updates and pictures of the progress.
