The archers

The first of the Tudor arches was formed today by joiner chap with minimum effort and to maximum effect. Once the arch is plastered in and I have cast off and inserted plaster spandrels (job to do number 3265 I think!) The upper hall and landing will be finished which is somewhat of a relief, as family OTW have to move into the house in 3 weeks and I really need to provide a bathroom and temporary kitchen or my growing tribe of daughters/mini terrorists will make their disapproval rather vocal.

Very neat job this Thudders!

Vocal daughters are probably the best incentive to get things moving pretty quickly...

Did you know a spandrel is also the name for that annoying space under the stairs,sometimes referred to as 'the chokey' by our star spangled cousins.It is also a good place to deposit vocal offspring of the female variety.And spouses for that matter!!
