Last week Brian and I worked on the conservatory and got the dwarf (stub) wall built. It's a challenge to follow all the directions as the conservatory came from England so it's all metric. But the instructions are very complete and helped us get it done. We have a few supplies to pick up for the work party, but if all goes right we should have it up by the end of the weekend. Haven't done a lot since as Brian has been working a lot of overtime. But just working on getting some spring cleaning done and painting some trim pieces for the upstairs bathroom.
Called the people that we got the shower from and they gave us a few suggestions on how to keep the doors from leaking. We will see if they work.

We have been working outside a bit since the weather turned nicer, mowing and weeding and just general clean-up, but I also got the wallpaper up in the downstairs bathroom. I am still a bit unsure of it...but I think once all the trim gets up it will be fine. It just seems a bit busy. We will see!
Tonight a car pulled up in front of the house and the people got out and took pictures of the house and the surrounding area.....it is really fun to watch! I guess if this wasn't my house, I would take pictures too! It actually happens quite often!
Brian and I are going to start working on getting the dwarf wall built for the conservatory. We have a work party planned for the 16th and 17th of June. Hope to get the rest of the building up that weekend! All are invited!!!

We had a bit of a catastrophe when Emily was here last week. She was taking a shower and pointed the sprayer the wrong way and we had water everywhere! It was half an inch deep on the bathroom floor upstairs and running down the walls into the downstairs bedroom and bathroom! We are still having issues with the shower leaking along the doors, will have to call the company to see what can be done...maybe some adjustment??? As Em said....if it was going to happen to anyone it would be her!!!
