The kitchen as it was on Monday

The kitchen as it was on Monday

Monday morning.

Mark arrived at La Maison Orange with a vanload of power tools.

The yellow brick fireplace was quickly removed and the existing kitchen units were soon also in the trailer and bound for the dump.

A new wall has now been erected along the left-hand side of the room, which has been jointed and plastered ready for me to redecorate today.

Yesterday, I removed the entire contents of the first floor and prepared the parquet floor and stairs for re-varnishing.

As Mark left yesterday evening, he joked: “Should be finished tomorrow… try and let La Maison Orange from Saturday”.

Guess what I have done…

Someone called yesterday evening: “Is La Maison Orange free from Saturday?”.

They arrive at 4.00pm on Saturday…..

How long does floor varnish take to dry?
