Demolishing parts of the Casa! (Casa Mirador)

Following on from my last post we bought another casa I thought I would update with the mess we've made so far LOL. Well, it has to get worse before it gets better.

Oh and I forgot to mention last time that we have a new member of the family too. Her name is Leyla, she's the most beautiful and affectionate cat ever. She came with house too! How she became part of the house is another story for another time. But for now, let me introduce you to Leyla...

Barry has been busy removing the kitchen and bathroom, plus the tiles too.  A messy job, but someone's got to do it.

We've also removed the broken terrace table and umbrellas, the terrace looks more spacious now and that's before we extend it!

I also forgot to show you last time, the sea view we have.  Not that I'm over bothered about a sea view, but it is a good selling point for the future.  The only problem is the telephone cables running right across it.  We'll have to think what to do about these.

Actually, it's not such a great pic, you can't see the sea LOL.  But trust me it's there, it's the white looking part just through and above the telephone cables!

What's next?...

We've ordered new windows and doors, bought new fittings for the existing internal doors and a couple of lamps for the lounge too.

The electrician has been to provide his quote for the electrical works that Barry can't do himself.  Hope he's not too dear!!!!!

We have also found the double sided fireplace (woodburner) to go into the new fireplace wall which will sit between the lounge and kitchen/diner, providing heat throughout.  Yes, it get damn cold here in the winter .

Also, we found the sofa style and fabric for the lounge.  Now that I thought would take forever, but we both agreed immediately on the design.  Barry was happy to leave the fabric choice to me being the interior designer!

Kitchen next I think.  I know exactly what I want, but it's finding the right combination of door/drawer fronts.  This may take a little while.  Watch this space.....
