After a lull in building work, we are about to start on the next major phase. We call the two halves of the house The Carlton and the Martinez and whilst The Carlton is nearly finished, very little has been done to The Martinez.
It is habitable but just. We are planning to build a small shower room downstairs. Currently you have to leave the house (there’s no connecting door yet to The Carlton), and go next door to have a bath or shower. We plan to take some of the garage space and knock a door through from the hallway. It needs building work, drainage putting in, then a floor and that’s before work starts on the actual shower room itself. It will be tiny, just one metre by three, with a recess for the loo.
Our plan is to get it in before the family all arrive in August. Feels like we’ve been here before.
