Half and Half, or Bewildering Be-Buildering.


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Half and Half.”

half and half

Gradually it has happened that the only remaining original parts of the house we are waiting patiently to move into are the walls (most of them, anyway) and the roof.  Everything that seemed as though it ‘would do’ has turned out to be a ‘won’t; don’t’!  Windows, doors, ceilings and cupboards have all been replaced.  Bath, basin, and toilet were removed and others put in, plus a shower.  A second toilet, shower and basin have been put in en suite.  I was hoping to retain the planked section of ceiling over the porch, but it became clear that it simply wasn’t going to fit in, so here is the process, half-way, of it being covered to conform with the other ceilings.

Pity.  Interesting becomes bland.  However, the ‘interesting’ would simply have jarred, in the current configuration.

  5. Nothing at all would “do” in our house either. Chris is hard at work replacing everything. I think yours will look lighter and brighter with the white ceiling. How’s your foot getting along?
