Episode 128- So what’s happening downstairs?

French doorsSo you have spotted the deliberate oversight. I haven’t mentioned what’s happening on the ground floor for a while. That’s because NOTHING is.

There are a number of reasons for this, firstly I have instructed  Trevor  to make a quick decision as to what TV/sound package we are having in salon as I want no trace of wires in there; so these will have to be run along workshop ceiling below. I do not want a repeat of the day I got home to find the recently refinished UK sitting room being taken apart to install the home cinema system.

Same applies as we make final decisions re wiring needs in kitchen & cave.  Plus, the ground floor currently functions as one big dumping ground/workshop for the rest of the French village house. It is hard to believe that this space below left will be a chic and charming guest room and that this dive below right will be the first dedicated art studio space I have ever had ………..hahahahahahahahahahahah

    Home cinema? Think yourself lucky – Two Brains took it upon himself to build a radio-telescope in the family room in the US and looked wounded when I told him to get it the hell out of there BEFORE I set foot on American soil!!


  2. Our art studios started out a lot like that too.

  3. It’s totally possible to imagine all of this – my living room looked exactly the same in 2013. And just last week the last door casing that went up held a tripping hazard of a data line in the wall for good. I pulled CAT-5 cables throughout the house even though I have no immediate plans to use any of them because it will be impossible to add them later. Though I have to say, there’s something charming about the way the house next door to my parents has a phone line that snakes up and down around the edges of every baseboard and door casing to to reach wherever someone wanted to add a phone later.
