We moved into the rented house to escape building work and have a warm place to stay until the barn was ready. But the kitchen is now awash with water as the flat roof has started to leak all over the place. An electrician has been to dismantle the electrics and I am mopping up dripping water from every surface!
Ironically, we can't move into the barn yet even though it is almost finished, because there is no water connection. At least the barn is watertight and feels warm even without heating - it is so well insulated. Our rented house is now damp and cold and feels miserable. As soon as that water is put in this weekend, we are moving out.
Had a big bonfire on Saturday. There was lots to burn and one of the builders does fireworks displays. We used the builders' barn for food and drinks. A good way to repay all those people we've upset with our building work over the past year
