I have no idea what we are going to do, all I know is:

  1. I’ve got to take down the ceilings on the upstairs and downstairs hall – we have a three (American) two (British) story house.
  2. Takedown the wall to my workroom
  3. Takedown the ceiling in my workroom
  4. Knock out the front wall and get a new door and windows fitted
  5. Jack-up the first-floor stairs (or replace them) and replace the ground floor floor
  6. Re-wire the electrical connections to every floor
  7. Re-fit new ceilings and walls
  8. Get this lot and the kitchen plastered
  9. work out how to replace the crap stairs and banister + do it
  10. The whole lot to be completed with minimal sub-contract labour by end August 07.

Oh and still hold down two jobs (and Flickr)

Hindsight: my life was about to change in ways I couldn’t begin to imagine. The work did get done. Fourteen months later it was all finished. By then my life was very different.
