Happy Monday folks! Time for a renovation progress post. This past week the tiler has been hard at work tiling the bathroom and painting has begun.
We also sat down and wrote a list of all the things that need to be undertaken before we can move in and, well, writing it down surely made it seem a lot bigger than what was in my head. But I am enthusiastically, but possibly impossibly, working towards moving in in three weeks time. Though the dates are somewhat dependent on the movements of the plasterer, floor polisher, electrician, plumber and carpenter of course. Some things will have to wait until we move in, such as the laundry and installing the new eaves. But I just want to get into my new house and get all our things out of boxes!
Once the plasterer returns to install the cornicing in the bathroom, the ceiling can be painted and the rest of the fixtures can be installed.
Like the shaving cabinet doors, vanity, shower screen, taps, towel rails, toilet, lighting... as well as the door.
Saturday I spent the day sugar soaping the walls of the entire upstairs level, while Dave started cutting in with the undercoat. I've never heard a man complain quite so much as my dear husband does with a paint brush in his hand. However, the budget does not extend far enough to include hiring a painter. Thankfully turning the music up and the promise of beer upon completion kept him going.
So much more painting to go...
I just love this little bit of wall paper we uncovered behind the power point in the master.
