Our little family is slightly scattered at the moment. Bel and Keffie and I are up in Surrey and Henry has remained in Brighton to work on the truck. Other than a quick driving lesson (for me), daddy daughter time (for them) and tapas date (for all of us) on Thursday we haven’t seen each other since moving out. I know it has only been a few days, but it feels longer.
With the pooch and baby out of his hair, Henry has been able to make some progress with the truck! The reMOT is next week, so a lot of the progress isn’t very photogenic (replaced tubes in the engine, brake light, etc) but some of the shape of the living area have started to come together.
We have storage! This is the wardrobe and chest of drawers that we had in our house, and it fits perfectly, just like we planned! (Totally kidding, we aren’t that good. It is just a magical coincidence)
This is a wide view towards the front of the truck, The chesterfield is just for phase one, we will eventually have a sofa that folds out into a double guest bed. At the moment we are focusing on getting her ready to move in, and some of the bells and whistles will be completed later.
The view from our bedroom! The little slatted thing is where Bel’s bed is going to be. The bedroom is going to be walled off from the main room so this view will disappear. Annabel is going to have her own space but alongside our bed.
Right now, as I type this, more unspeakably exciting things are happening in the truck. I’ll give you a clue. It is not the walls or ceiling.
Tune in next time, for more build progress!
