and we still have no walls downstairs, no heating, no kitchen and no windows. Getting a bit fed up actually. We had a meeting on Thursday with the builder, architect and kitchen people. The former were trying to insist that the kitchen be installed before Xmas, which would be great except that as far as I can see almost no progress has been made on erecting the actual room it will be in. Call me cynical but I can't believe we're going to be finished in 5 weeks - despite the builders' assertions that they're on schedule! Opted to have the kitchen installed in January instead, as I can see it getting damaged if it has to be delivered to the building site that is currently our home.
I'm 39 and married with two children aged seven and four. I'm fatally attracted to house renovation projects, and this is our third in the last seven years, my personal fifth since I bought my first flat in 1996. I think we might have bitten off more than we can chew with the Worst House.
Our architect recently commissioned photographer Joel Knight to take some photos of the Worst House in its finished state. Have a look on his website at joelknightphotography (The Worst House is in a couple of pictures on his Architectural page under 'extensions'.)
You can also see some very scary photos of the Worst House under construction on our architect's site -architecture wk. (The Worst House is under selected projects/residential/Morley Road.)
And photographer Carl Pendle took some pictures of the Worst House in January for Real Homes Magazine - watch this space...
