I know this might not at first seem games related, but in a vague way it is. A) It is keeping me away from consoles B) I have a pile of stuff I need to do for others (Not forgotten OE or Psycho, or Limey or UJ.... list continues!)
However, here's what I am in the middle of. Suffice to say I am reluctant to drag any dev kits out of storage and into this mess right now!
The previous owners had NO DIY skills and I am slowly unravelling their mistakes. For some unknown reason they decided to remove the wall between the kitchen and the dining room. Move the kitchen into the dining room (thus moving pipes, gas mains, electricity cables, sink, cabinets etc etc) and then block a joining door to the living room.
Immediately after that they moved the boiler into a bedroom (?) and built a conservatory, but left 2 sets of doors to get to the one room (?)
So, what you see in the first image is me blocking off the first door, boxing it in with a wooden frame, putting up plasterboard, plastering it and then letting the wife do a bit of decorating.
I've already moved the boiler downstairs again into a cupboard with the vent to the external wall (installed professionally by someone else) and fixed the bedroom so that it is without all the pipework etc.
So, now I am ripping out the kitchen and putting back in a more orderly fashion with new & existing cabinets, re-wiring and generally doing things the way they should have done them in the first place!
Next week I am laying a new floor. I have thus far removed almost 1 tonne of stuff from the property to get to this stage, including 20 rubble sacks of flooring tiles!
There you have it, if you are waiting for me to fix or document something, please come back later! ;-)
