Basement Continued and a Thank you.

Firstly I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments on the last post. It was a very hard post to write and I appreciated everyones kind words about Buckley.
 This week has seen some more progress on the victorian house with the second part of the basement started. It has been a fiddly process but I'm happy with it. The tower will have a basement that has two rooms and will be a separate addition to the house. This enables me to pull it out to see the internal rooms.

The right side bay window is beginning to come together also.
 This dormer window was one of the easiest pieces to fit. I wish the same could be said for the right side attic window. It proved to be quite painful!
 Photo of internal bay window. This cutout came with the kit. I think its a cute detail as the original plans have a plain square cutout.
This is a photo of my choice of basement windows. They were super cheap at A$4 for 13!  They seem to be the perfect size also.
 Finally I would like to show you the pictures of the lovely gifts I received. I entered a giveaway at and won this adorable tree. The pictures do not do it justice!

I also won all the items in the next two photos. The beading is wonderful. Merita, thank you for the wonderful gifts.

Well I hope everyone is enjoying the weather. We have had our first few days of Spring which has been marvellous.

Enjoy your week
