Back to work

With Christmas done and dusted, the house is (thankfully) back to being a busy worksite again.

The kitchen was fitted just before the Christmas break and is now waiting for its quartz worktop to go on in the morning.

The pendants and spotlights are now going in to the open plan living space. I can’t deny though, we have had a few position dilemmas along the way (the joists and beams certainly haven’t helped us…!). We are almost there though, we just need to spend this evening running through the finer details with our trusted electrician (AKA my brother-in-law, Danny).

Yesterday, works began on fitting the cabinets for our utility room. Unfortunately, this hasn’t been without its problems. We discovered that the company that we bought the cabinets from clearly hadn’t measured the utility room properly and as a result, our cabinets are the wrong size for the space they need to go into. Not good. Fortunately, we have a very good carpenter on site and he is busy trying to fix the issue. Our lounge continues to house the rest of the utility room cabinets until they are all ready to be installed.

The wood flooring continues to go down – we are now on to the landing…

Satin, satin and more satin paint. All of the woodwork is now having its final coat.

And lastly, towel rails and underfloor heating thermostats are going in. Although me being me, I think that the first towel rail that was fitted today, is too high and needs to be lowered. Sorry guys, more work for you I’m afraid..!
