Unplanned Eleventh Viewing

Today we headed off to Hilmorton (The Canal Shop) to collect the composting Airhead toilet, spare urine container, desicant and a solar powered fan that Bob had ordered for us.  First we went to Midland Chandlers where we bought a life jacket each and a few other bits and bobs.  A few other bits were bought at The Canal Shop!  This was our first 'boat' shop, so I think we have been fairly patient.  Once the toilet was loaded in the car we took Monty for a walk along the canal, had lunch in the Pub and then headed for Stoke Prior to hand over the toilet.  Whilst there we just had to have a look!

This is Airhead toilet

Still all wrapped up - with battery box leaning on the side

The ash panels are going up

A few ceiling panels are in place

I hope they tidy up before they finish!

More panels and loads of wires

Lots of metal

Doors and things

The fabric samples had arrived at Pinders', so we were able to make a decision - the colour is brighter than it is in reality.  We are bringing the outside colours inside.

 And this will be the blinds and curtains - again the colour is not exact

The cupboard doors will be plain and cream (this example is white)

This is one of the ash doors that has been varnished

The colour here is not good, but it gives some idea of what the work tops will be

 Next visit is on Monday 22 April and it is likely that launch will be sometime next week. We could potentially be looking at another 5 weeks before she is ours and we have a lot to do!  We are still not counting our chickens or holding our breath.
