I spent my last few weeks in Italy trying to finish the things that I can do in our new house. I can’t connect the electricity and the water, or put the beautiful chestnut shutters on the windows and doors, but I can paint and make curtains.
Here is the result of the hard work of a lot of people.
The road up to the house.
There will be a gate there one day.
You can just see the house through the trees.
The stone for the house came from the property.
The view is ready.
Now for the inside. Most of the kitchen is complete. There are just some tiles to go up behind the cooktop and some painting to be done.
The tiles for the splash back. (This is for you Janine)
The living room.
The chestnut shutters are there ready to go up.
Aren’t they beautiful?
Now up the stairs to the little study.
And on to the main bedroom.
The bathroom is almost complete.
Up the stairs to the top floor.
And the last bedroom.
This is the view from the bathroom window.
The volcanic stone doorway looks wonderful.
Thank you to all our lovely builders and to Adriano for building a beautiful house…..anyone want to rent it or buy it? Hopefully the electricity will be connected soon. The poles are up and the wires to the house, we just need the final connection. Light fittings have to be put in and a few more bits and pieces collected…..not much really.
I will return in early September to finish things off.
For those of you who are new to the blog, take a look in the category New house in Vergemoli to see it grow.
