Bank Hol Working Weekend

Things haven’t been able to progress as we’d like, due to issues with the plumber. What is it with plumbers?! I have boiler and rads sitting in their boxes in my living room, but as the boiler hasn’t been fitted and pipes not changed the ceiling and top part of walls couldn’t be boarded. The floor was supposed to be laid Fri, but had to cancel this due to the plumber being a complete time waster (pipes need to be laid first). Had a nice hot shower at my builders house tonight tho.

The kitchen windows have been changed and the majority of the wall dry lined. The wet room ceiling has been boarded. The lounge has been rendered, ready to be skimmed tomorrow.

Boarding Wet Room Ceiling

I have taken out two of the built in wardrobes in my bedroom, which really opens up the room.



I’ve also filled more of the lounge walls and ceiling and given the ceiling the first coat of paint. Was given some caulking and a gun yesterday, which makes filling in the gaps in the corners between walls easy.

Plus lots of little jobs, like painting door frames – which as the architraves (door frame surrounds) are Victorian they are a total pain to paint.
