Tool box being packed away

Storing away the tools!

Saturday marked in some ways the end of my major ‘doing up my flat’ build. It all started over 2 years ago, without any clue what I was doing, a new tool box, drill and a readers digest D.I.Y book. Since then I’ve learnt how to wired and also the importance of double checking that the electricity is off first! How to fit a kitchen, plumb, sink pipes into walls, fit skirting boards, line walls, install fireplaces and loads more.

Each room has it’s own story to tell and I’m glad to say that I’ve survived with all fingers in place, although there’s been some close shaves. So it’s with this final D.I.Y post for now that I sign off by saying that it’s been fun, hard work, exciting and a great experience!

This first post in a while also marks having at last the internet at the flat after 2 years without, woo hoo!
