Our beautiful @ted_todd_floors has started to be laid ready for the kitchen installation to start in the next couple of weeks. We had debated between planks and chevron style flooring in here for months but I’m so pleased with our final choice 🤍
Come on Monday...let’s do this! I hope everyone has a productive day. I’m feeling motivated today...let’s see how long it lasts! ⠀
Ok, today’s post shows the stages of the roof going on. We have a warm flat roof, so the insulation sits on top of the first layer of OSB which is laid on the joists (with firrings to create the fall), then the vapour barrier and another layer of OSB fixed down with thermal fixings to stop any thermal bridging, before the felt was laid. The roofer was the first trade we have had on site...everything else has been done by the hubby! ⠀
But before anything could be done, our daughter’s bedroom window has to be blocked up as it was in the way of the ringbeam...the silver lining is that she is sleeping longer in the mornings as no light getting in!! Don’t worry, she will be getting a new window shortly! ⠀
See pics for progress ⏩⠀
What a beautiful sunny weekend we had in Waterford 🌞 I love it when it's clear and we see right through our windows and sliding door 🤩 Oh and that view of the river is OK too 😉
If you'd like information about our windows, I have a blog post called "Let's Talk Windows." The link is on my profile page, then click on Trace My Home Blog.
What have you guys got planned for thw week? My sister in law, husband and bubba came down for a week and it has been so good to see them. She's staying another week with baby Indi 🥰 while hubby goes back to work, boo.
Hope you all have a great start to the week 🔆 💚

Getting the lawns completed was our first lockdown project...
The last day we had a sky like this was the day we sowed the grass. Today we are feeling a great sense of achievement that we made this happen! It took a lot of hard work and days to get us here and we had help from lots of family members but this lawn will forever remind us of one the toughest times in our life but our special tree is there to remind us that we’ve been through tougher! Hope everyone is staying safe and enjoying this beautiful weather xx. #gardendesigns#garden#tree#lockdown#lockdownproject#selfbuild#selfbuildireland#newhome#landscape#irishhousedesign
