Yes, thinking about another now


good luck, its hard amidst all the dust and chaos but when its done and decorated and you've got all that lovely space to move into it is well worth it.

i'm nearly three weeks in and its bloody hard going!

will be worth it in the end, but it is hard, its dirty, chaotic, have men in my house all the time (hmm]grin!), constantly doing something when all i want to do is have a uiet relaxed evening.... kids can't play outside etc..i could go on, but it WILL BE LOVELY WHEN ITS DONE!!!!!!! [weary]

Yes - when we have the cash

Yes - once the mess has gone and all has been moved, you wonder how you ever lived without the extension .

Good luck!!

Yes you are insane.

I would never ever ever ever go through the pain and hasstle of extending ever again.

It was hideous.

I would rather move.

Don't do it.

It's not nearly as bad as trying to sell, trying to buy, getting through conveyancing, uprooting everyone, paying tens of thousands in stamp duty and then finding out the new neighbours are nutters. Extend - it's horrible but it doesn't last forever and it's cheaper than moving.

At the time you think 'this is a nightmare',
but after it is all over you think 'it wasnt really that bad'. Well I did anyway.

I love my new kitchen/diner... it was well worth the upheaval.
