I’m okay with that.

I should suspect we won’t start for 4 years.  I really like to think you’ll have a kitchen by then!

Oh my... me too!  A year of this is wearisome. Four more years?  No thank you!  We will take out a loan to do the render if we have to to get the house to a state where we can work on the inside!

Sorry if I made you think I was genuinely worried, or something.  Text-based communication... I know how it is.  :P

I think it would make more sense if you came here.  I have the workshop here, after all.  It would actually be fun to have a workshop open house one day, I think.  Play around in the workshop, making random things.  Then we could have homemade pizza in the garden.  Eeeee!  My future house is going to be so amazing for entertaining!  (It's rather shocking at the moment, though.)  Yay!

Oh my gawd, I just thought of what we could make!  Everybody has to make their own seat for the garden pizza party!  This is even better than my idea for a Bob Ross party (set up a bunch of easels and canvasses, supply brushes and paints, and have Bob Ross playing on a screen constantly... and plenty of alcohol available if you want it)!

I can completely and 100% get behind this. Once your pizza oven is built and it's not winter/crappy out anymore, you DEFINITELY need to have a workshop! :D :D :D :D

In my head, my home is so amazing.  In reality, it's a crumbling hovel.  But once we have got the exterior render done, we can really start to help House fulfill its destiny.  I am looking forward to being able to have company over one day.  :)

I know that feeling...not to the same degree as you as I *do* have a kitchen (ha ha) but I do think that I probably see my house a lot better than it actually is when strangers come into it. We bought a project house and are slowlllyyyy getting it looking right but it just takes so much time and money to sort some of that stuff out lol.

We haven't even got started because all our money is paying for my husband to commute to a place he doesn't want to be to do a job he doesn't want to do, and saving for my ILR application.  So we huddle in our hovel and we wait.

Now that your woodworking business has begun you can change that! haha ;) and you could also charge people to take classes with you! Capitalise on that skill :p

hahah  In the interest of full disclosure, I should state unequivocally that I am a terrible teacher.  I do a thing, say, "now you do it," and if the person can't do it at that point I get frustrated at my inability to make them understand.  But maybe it's different with woodworking.  I've so far only tested my ability to teach maths to people... that's a bit abstract compared to showing someone how to make a physical thing.

if it helps, I find it easiest to learn by doing. Show me what I'm doing and then let me crack on and give me feedback haha I will ask questions as necessary.

Also....maths is just the worst (for me) in general so I'd never ask you to teach me that, don't worry ;) I have calculators and google for that!
