Week 61 – Site Progress! First fix done plus twinkly lights…

Another milestone this week, the first fix electrics are complete and we can now focus on insulation soon, hopefully week 62!

Building control paid site a visit on Wednesday and they are happy with everything so we are good to go when it comes to covering the walls and floors

And our very pretty twinkly LEDs arrived….I love these! And they will look fabulous in the cinema room don’t you think?

They look like a piece of jewellery…

And the splay of light they display is gorgeous, I think I prefer these to the really tiny numerous twinkle lights that were another option but wouldn’t have been as easy to do….

Plus I couldn’t resist buying a chalkboard so that we can make a weekly list, now we are edging closer to really cracking on with the interiors!

And Harold the builder has been doing more woodwork upto roof height in anticipation of the plasterboarding

Plus the shower trays can now be placed in situ ready for the next stages such as insulation, underfloor heating and screed

Andy’s ensuite

It is strange having a finished item in place! And these trays are stone too…very heavy!

Guest ensuite

And the door installer sent a pic of the front door! Very excited to see it! Ideally it needs to be installed before the plastering is finished, so a little way off yet…

THE front door!

And that’s it for another week! Not sure when the insulation will arrive so we can crack on with that but we shall see…watch this space!
