Before ...

Some of you know my Mum (90 this year) came to live with us last May. It brought quite a lot of change for all of us, not least the work we had to do on the house. We needed to give Mum a downstairs loo and shower, as well as a ground floor bedsitter for when the stairs become a problem. We only have a small semi-detached house (originally two double bedrooms and a small single - now two double en suites), which meant a lot of planning needed.

So, we decided to split the long galley style kitchen

into two. The front end (from the window) would become the new kitchen, while the back would become a wet room.

Work would include taking down the wall separating the kitchen and conservatory, and replacing the flat, kitchen roof and see-through conservatory one, with one high, sloping roof with two skylights.

The doors between the conservatory and sitting room, in the pic above were to go as well, to give a large L-shaped kitchen diner with sitting area.

It seemed straightforward in theory ...
