It's so frustrating when things don't fit quite as they should. Well done for sticking with it - it's looking great.

However, as I said, I will get there eventually (thanks to the patient help of my hubbie).
Oh that is disappointing. You would think they would check these things a bit more before selling the kits. Thatís pretty poor.

That's a beautiful house, you have done a lovely job, despite the difficulties of things not fitting, etc. Hope everything else goes smoothly!

Default Thank you

Thank you all for your kind words - I loved reading the comments which cheered me up after a horrid week with a particularly nasty head cold.
