As we approach March, we also approach the wetter months of Autumn. Unfortunately the rain kept us from continuing work on the shed and instead we worked away on the bathrooms. I was extremely moody and just not a nice person to work with. Renovating can definitely bring out the worst in you too as … Continue reading Rainy days keep us busy indoors
Sunday was more of a shed day, we got stuck into it, continuing to add sheets on the roof.
