The house is coming along quite nicely, although Elliot is becoming very frustrated with not being able to go inside and not seeing any progress. We managed to complete painting the bedroom white with the primer paint at the weekend (before my fall); so now I’m just waiting on sample paints to arrive to start picking the colours.
Elliot would like to get the bathroom tiled and ready for when the plumbers are back but unfortunately, things like the shower trey require the plumbers to fit them before the tiler can do his thing. So at the moment, it’s a chicken and egg situation.
I see it as quite a positive; our plasterers are still in the house getting on with everything, working hard and plastering all of the rooms which means on Saturday when we go in, suspect most of it will be done. Within a couple of weeks, we’ll be painting all the downstairs walls and getting everything ready to start designing our home.
Once the plastering has been done the plumbers will add the underfloor heating and then the plasterers will apply the screed to the floor. Once this is done and the plumbers hook up the boiler, we’re pretty much on the home stretch.
It won’t be long now, it’s just the virus holding up some elements. However, nothing could really be done while the plasterers are doing all the walls so I guess not much has been held up… yet!
All in all, we’re safe, healthy and at mum and dads. We’re just being petulant children wishing it was completed already so we could spend this time off pottering around the house enjoying it and doing DIY.
