Finally, new carpets have been laid in the Swan House! The Swan family were starting to think it would never happen. But now they've been able to move in the furniture they already possess, and think about what else they will need before they themselves can move in.
The dining table and chairs were a wedding present - they look very nice in the new spacious dining area.
The living room is starting to look more homely:
The bedrooms have beds and somewhere to keep clothes.
The bathroom looks good, with a Brio bathroom
intended for a Brio house on which the sale fell through:
The kitchen, however, still looks very bare:
The Swans aren't sure why there isn't even a sink in here - were all the kitchen fitments trashed by the previous owners? or did they intend to renovate, and didn't get past removing the old kitchen? Whatever the reason, the Swans need a functional kitchen before they can move in.
So, after taking a breather in the TV room off the balcony, they are off to Tim's Secondhand Shop to see what he can supply.
(Their carpet layer, Rebecca, has decided that she should not leave her current job to take up carpet laying. She would also appreciate suggestions from anybody who knows how to get photos lined up across the page, as hers will not stay where she tries to put them.)
