Week 71 – Site Progress!

Annnnddddd the plastering is now finished woop!! All done by Friday and now it’s just drying out before we start painting next weekend…eek! The plasterer said we could probably leave it just a few days before making a start on the painting, but we think we’ll wait…patience is key ha!

Love love love the landing area…this is going to be fun to paint though!

And we paid a visit to B&Q to buy some window prep masking film…3 packs of 20m should do it!

Plus, we quite like these tiles for the guest ensuite from B&Q, they should work well with microcement walls and also they don’t need sealing..bonus! It feels a little surreal to be actually picking the finishes; We have been planning for so long and bouncing ideas around, its still hard to believe that we’ll be living in the new house soon!

Bargain!! Plus 15% off

And window prepping, we’ve made a start on the fixed windows, but as we want to open windows, to dry the plaster, we’ll wait until the end of the week to do all of the prep….

Quick note as well, we have been experimenting with sanding and staining a parquet unfinished hardwood flooring…the before and after look pretty impressive, however we really need to calculate the time to do this rather than going for a finished wood…watch this space for more!
