Week 56 – Site Progress..first fix electrics and more stud walls

More progress this week! Andy has been assigned some plumbing tasks and so he made a start on those…cue plumbing related items laid out all pretty in the house ha ha!

And he invested in a new drill, and special drill bit making drilling the plumbing holes much easier!

Needless to say he’s very happy with this one Einhell drill and drill bit More info in the youtube below…

Plus Eddie, the electrician made a start this week! And we have back boxes for sockets, thermostats and light switches yay! And I thought we were organised with regards to lighting…until we realised how difficult it is to decide which circuits to go with which switches! Especially in open plan areas. Wow! Blows your mind ha! But we got there in the end

And Harold, the builder has been cracking on with the stud walls!

This one is on the landing, for Andy’s dressing room. And, as we’ve mentioned before, will stop short of the full roof height to create some interest and show off the roof line

And Harold has done the door casing too now…

And the guest ensuite as well…

Plus this one divides my ensuite and dressing room…and will have a secret mirror door!

Also we needed to decide how big to make a coat cupboard in the tiki bar, cue me pretending to be a coat ha ha! To which Harold pointed out that it simply needed to be the depth of a wardrobe…that works too!

And you’ve guessed it, there will be another hidden door using acoustic panelling, watch this space for a blog inspo post!

Week 57 should see the last of the first fix electrics and Harold is going to contact the plasterer screeder to arrange screed and plastering eek!!
