At home Building work
We've had the builders in since Monday. Abbiamo i muratori in casa da lunedì scorso.
The house is in a right mess. La casa è nel caos totale.
What kind of building work are you having done? Che tipo di lavori di costruzione state facendo fare?
We're having a loft extension done. Stiamo facendo allargare il sottotetto.
That sounds like a lot of upheaval. Sembra un cambiamento radicale.
Tell me about it! A chi lo dici!
The builders have covered all the carpets, but there's still dust everywhere. I muratori hanno coperto tutta la moquette ma c'è ancora polvere ovunque.
We've put quite a lot of stuff into storage while the builders are here. Abbiamo messo un bel po' di cose in deposito mentre ci sono i muratori.
The house has been turned upside down. La casa è stata messa sottosopra.
How long is the job going to take? Quanto tempo ci vorrà per finire il lavoro?
The builders said the job would take six to eight weeks, max. I muratori dicono che per i lavori ci vorranno da sei a otto settimane al massimo.
They told me it would take three weeks at the most. Mi hanno detto che ci vorranno tre settimane al massimo.
When the loft extension is finished, we'll have a lot more space. Quando l'allargamento del sottotetto sarà finito avremo molto più spazio.
We'll have an extra bedroom once the job's done. Avremo una camera da letto in più quando il lavoro sarà finito.
The loft conversion will add £50,000 to the value of the house. La conversione del sottotetto aggiungerà £50.000 al valore della casa.
Once it's over, you forget all about the hassle. Quando sarà finito ti dimenticherai completamente di questa seccatura.
I suppose so. Credo anch'io.
We are looking for a new place. Stiamo cercando un'altra casa.
The house prices around here are astronomical. I prezzi delle case qui intorno sono esagerati.
We can't afford to move. Non possiamo permetterci di traslocare.
