Week 57 – Site Progress..we have wires! Plus door casings,and great finds!

Busy week this week, Eddie the electrician…official name ha (!) has been on site most of the week and has pretty much done all the first fix electrics upstairs

Wires..wires everywhere! And lots of them in the cinema room…we will be having twinkly LED spotlights in here…

As you can see, very sparkly and we’ve just ordered from here

Improvisation..using a headboard for wall light positioning!

And a top tip! If you are thinking of, or in the process of self building make sure you’re organised when it comes to lighting, before first fix. Luckily we had already purchased all our lights or at least had an idea of dimensions and had a fab light plan as well from Luxplan

Eddie had so many questions with regards to where to wire, and positioning. It makes life so much easier if you know light sizes and where you want them..plus have a good think about circuits and light switches too. How many circuits to what switches etc. It can be pretty mind blowing!

Sidenote..we are thinking of going with smart switches but we’ll go into more detail in a separate blog post! Watch this space…

Plus Harold has been too…we actually had a day in which both him and Eddie were here, it really felt like it was all go ha!

And he has been busy doing door casings, he just needs to do some more stud wall related jobs and then we should be ready for screed once Eddie has finished and the first fix plumbing is done

Plus we found some fab midcentury chairs on ebay, love these and should work well in the open plan kitchen/diner…

Trying them out obvs

And that’s it for another week! Eddie is back on Monday to crack on with wiring downstairs and hopefully we can get the first fix plumbing sorted. We’ve just been waiting on some fittings, as there has been stock issues but to be expected in these crazy times hey!

Plus Brinno time…
