The stone mason from Farmington visited this week to fit the new fireplace. Made from natural limestone it has been cut to fit the area exactly and makes a real difference to the room. The colour will change somewhat as the stone dries out and settles and it will be a little while until we can actually use it. We now need the inside of the fireplace to be fitted and within 3 weeks should be able to light our first real fire.
The wood floor is also nearly finished with just under half of it still to do. We hope to have this completed this weekend. Then we need to fit and paint the coving and paint the skirting boards and door frames. The rest of the furniture will come later as we put aside funds to pay for it but for now the bulk of this room is done. Time to start on the nursery.
