I've levelled the score and now we're drawing on aggregate.
The carpenter arrived fifteen minutes ahead of schedule on Monday and installed the internal doors. 2-1.
I'm sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee made in my newly installed kitchen. After three sweltering days, the sun is just peeping through the clouds and the birds are singing in celebration. The equaliser!
All is well with the World.
The kitchen took three and a bit days for Spain's slowest kitchen fitter to assemble, but it looks great, and I have the satisfaction of knowing that he checked and double-checked every screw and bolt.
Now all that remains is painting, furniture, and a bit of landscaping and the barn will be finished, allowing thoughts to turn to the big house.
More on the kitchen and other exploits when I have better wifi access.
