A dustbowl.


I'm having an extension built at the back of the house. For all these years that we've lived in the place we've survived with a narrow galley kitchen and have finally decided to remedy the situation. This is not out of vanity, it's because with an extended family now, we need more dining space. When you have fourteen for crimbo lunch, you'll know why.

We decided to go for broke (I probably will be by the time it is finished), and are having a kitchen space of 30m2.

All has gone well so far. The walls are up, the roof is on, the bi-fold doors are being fitted, and the cabling is now in place.

The downside is that we have come to the stage where we are having the wall down between the old kitchen and the new area. The result so far (they've only knocked out a few bricks in order to fit two RSJ's), is that the downstairs of the house is resembling the sahara desert. Tomorrow will probably be even worse as they are knocking the whole wall down, and opening up for a new back door from the existing kitchen.

Another interesting fact is that the leckies decided I would need a new consumer unit situated in the utility room to supply electrical services to the back of the house. By the size of the cabling I reckon there is one wind turbine that is no longer connected to the national grid!

Right. I need another large whisky to clear the dust from my throat.

  1. Heh.. you think that's bad? Try having the same stuff for 7 weeks continuous, only its happening next door, and you work 12 hour night shifts. And you can't complain because the neighbour has fucked off to India on holiday and let the builders get on with it, until they finish and it is found they screwed up, so another firm of builders come in to correct it, taking another 2 weeks..

  2. This sounds like a smoking ban nightmare,,,,,are the lads inside or outside when they are working...hell does the smoking ban even apply to private homes?

    Play safe Flithy and tell the lads there will be plastic chairs and a bucket on the pavement outside the property for smoking, E-cigs also banned from the site until the current confusion over them has been cleared up.

    Hope this helps

    1. Christ, you really are the most insufferable prat, DD.

      Do you really have nothing better to do than hurl adolescent insults at people? You have absolutely nothing to say, yet you keep saying it ad nauseam. Maybe one day you'll grow up and find something worthwhile to do with your life.

      I'm ever the optimist...

    2. I let them smoke on the job as it helps them come up with creative ideas. Smokers are better at that than non smokers.

    3. @Nisakiman, Hurl insults???,,,,you of all wankers should realise that being a conspiracy and denial loon on various online cults its all about hurling insults at people.....its wot Dick Pudddlecote/Frank Davis do for a hobby.

      So I will hurl insults at who I choose without checking first if he/she is on your acceptable people to insult list.

      Its all about Freedom of speech...oh forget it....it will all go over your head anyway.

      There is a complaints procedure on the blog, please click the link.

  3. Buy a cheap vacuum cleaner until all the brickwork had been finished as brick dust really f*cks up those machines
    and you can then go back to your super doofer suction device. We didn't and had to buy a new one!

  4. Whiskey is a great way to lay the dust.

    BTW; someone remind Dick Head that e-cigs are going to be free on the National 'Elf. Well at least according to the Tellytubbygraph. Never mind spurious Japanese reports.

    1. I like to leave his posts up so that we can all see that there will always be a place for idiots in this world. It's akin to taking in stray dogs. Makes you feel better

  5. E-cigs on the NHS....Smoking ban and further improvements -100%compliance and zero effective lobbying.

    Whats left for Smoking bloggers.....yep you have guessed right,anything will do as long as they can make a conspiracy of lies and hate out of.

    Cos Smoking related blogging is dead.

    Read and weep Puddlecote...E-CIGS on the NHS.
