After being on a caravan holiday in Carterton for the last couple of weeks, we towed our caravan back to our temporary lodgings in Otaki, stopping off in Levin to check out our new home. Things are really moving forward quickly, with the walls and roof trusses now erected. There was no sign of the builders on our property while we were there, and we found them busily working on another villa. Stepping onto the concrete floor, we wandered through each room, trying to see how it would look when completed. Here I am contemplating the spare bedroom, which will eventually become my new sewing room. No doubt an office as well, as we will need somewhere to put the filing cabinet, printers and all those sorts of things.
I’ll have to wait till all the walls are up and check on the position of the power points before I decide exactly where I will be placing my sewing cabinet, and the best wall for the shelving. And as we have sold off the beds and furniture from our former house, I rather like the idea of purchasing a bed settee (sofa). Then we will have a bed for the occasional visitor and I will be able to curl up on the sofa with a quilty magazine. Just hope we can fit all these things in – plus my fabrics, books and a whole heap of UFOs!
