The painting finished, we phoned a carpet layer expecting a long wait but he came the very next day to lay the carpet.  The furniture has been moved in and we have started to gather books from storage for the book shelves. 

There are still various pictures to assemble and the rest of the books and some items to display but we are pleased with the result so far.  The curtains are temporary and, once the rest of the lounge etc has been repainted, new ones will  be purchased.

In the bottom photo there is a cat in the basket on the settee.

There has been a lot of work by Doug to get the sun room ready to start painting.  The power plugs have been installed and finally it is ready.  Then it will be time for us to get the carpet that he bought in 2008 out of its storage in the garage to check that it has survived without being eaten by some chewing insect.  We will then buy some underlay and arrange for a carpet layer.  It will then be time to sort out what furniture will fit where.  It is a long narrow room but has made such a difference already as, instead of being a cold windswept deck it is now a sunny room.
