Week 65 and 66 – Site Progress!

Well week 65 was pretty quiet..just a little bit of woodwork and some insulation upstairs…



As you can see, we are pretty much ready to insulate the roof areas, definitely a job for week 67!

Plus check out the peacocks, clearly loving the scaffolding at the front ha!

And they’re getting braver and braver, even paid the old house a visit!

In week 66 we finished off the underfloor in the hallway and downstairs toilet ready for screed!

And Harold finished off the bay windows with the ridge tiles yay! It really does feel like it is all coming together now

Plus lots of insulation was delivered and is ready for week 67 when the screed has dried…

And we had screed on Friday!! It only took them a few hours and look how smooth it is…hmmm good enough to eat ha! Andy was a little nervous in case there were any issues beforehand but everything was spot on and they were able to get screeding as soon as it arrived. They just had one question..where was the most important area for setting the floor height, and in our case it was the bifolds and it needed to be 15mm below the bottom of the door for the finished flooring, which then set the floor height. And so the overall floor would be level with 60 to 70mm of screed

So that’s it for another two weeks! In week 67 we’ll be able to insulate all the roof areas with Harold and then we should be ready for plasterboard and plastering in week 68 yay!
