Week 68 – Site Progress! We have plasterboard plus digging up the road…

Busy week, and we managed to do most of the insulation before the plasterers turned up on Thursday! As you can see Andy was loving it….not ha!

And, because we can’t use the electrical cabling from the current house, as it is too old, a new cable is needed to run through to the opposite side of the road….

Luckily it didn’t take long, and they were all done within a couple of days!

And then the plasterers arrived! I was so excited, it’s such a big milestone isn’t it? And it’ll really feel like a home. Plus the paint sprayer should be arriving soon but that’s for another post..

Also I love the smell of plasterboard…is it just me!? And the lower wall on the landing looks so cool now it is plastered. Showing off roof height was a good decision made

And the vaulted ceiling areas upstairs…

Plus the double height too..it will be so bright in the hallway!

And Andy shouldn’t bang his head anymore ha! In our current house, the ceilings are pretty low..surprised he hasn’t hit his head multiple times!

So just a tidy up at the weekend ready for the plasterers coming back on Monday

And we did a little shopping, it’s so strange to actually start seriously considering the interiors! I have to pinch myself that we’ll be moving soon..

These vases definitely have a peacock vibe and I had to snap them up as they were from Primark and you just never know how long they will have stuff in for!


Also, we really need to make some decisions with regards to the kitchen next week! Yes! We’ve come across some gorgeous kitchen doors from a company called naked kitchens and we will be paying them a visit in week 69…we will no doubt do a more detailed post when we decide

And ikea might be an option for the actual cabinetry and internal storage…check out our YouTube for a little more info. And some timelapse!
