Blown Away

Well we visited the builders this weekend as arranged and met Lee our granite man there, what a great chap, He had to travel from Wisbech in Cambridgeshire to Stoke on Trent but not a moan at all, in fact was only too pleased to help out, He and his brother Mark got straight on with finishing the tops as they had left the sink holes and hob hole to cut on site because Lee was concerned about the granite being damaged and cracking at the weak points during transit.
And to cut a long story short Blown away is the only way I can describe how they look, but judge for yourself.
As for progress on the boat building Paul has been busy finishing the galley area ready for the granite, if you can see at the end of the galley left hand side you can see two doors, Paul has decorated these with a decorative piece of elm that he has had for years and it looks fantastic, and I know I keep harping on but it's this what makes our builder so special, the enthusiasm and finishing touches make all the difference.
Ian has been busy in the bathroom making the cabinet to his usual high standards I can see this boy going far in the future, his attention to detail is second to none.
Maria has been busy tiling and painting and has managed to get a great finish on the base paint, so all in all it was a very good visit and we seem on schedule for the boat show at Crick.
