The scaffolders turned up, then they went away again. They have only put up half of the scaffold so that the tilers are running out of roof space to cover. Trying to track down the scaffolders now. We need to get the scaffold up in the neighbour's garden in the next week so that their side of the roof can be done while they're on holiday.
In the meantime, am now researching kitchens, tiles and bathrooms. A time-consuming process as they all look much the same to me and I'm not that high-spec. A modern Magnet kitchen looks good value and stylish. The wood-burning stove is high-spec though and will cost a fortune, but hopefully will keep us warm.
First date for a utility connection today - well done EDF! Gas and water are taking months.
