First fix electrics, plumbing and plastering

The builders are really making progress on the renovation and extension.  The first fix electrics has gone in and we have wires hanging down from the kitchen ceiling where the spotlights will be and patress boxes where the sockets will be.

The plumber has been working alongside the electrician and he has put in the central heating pipes, the water supply pipes to the showers, toilets and washbasins and has drilled through to our side of the house to meet up with the existing supply.  The result of which is that we have had to empty airing cupboards, clear the bookcases in the store room creating even more chaos in the home, so that the plumber has access.

This is the manifold for the under floor heating on the ground floor.

And this is what the underfloor heating pipes look like before the concrete is laid over the top, which is what the builders are doing today.

Yesterday they started the plastering on the first and second floor, in the bedrooms.  It really transforms the rooms and the finish is silky smooth – wonderful. With the plastering on the walls the patress boxes disappear into the walls and will be ready for the second fix which is adding the sockets.

This makes the nooks and crannies stand out even more.

The old beams on the ceilings seamlessly fit in now.

Next job for us will be to choose the colours for the walls to be painted.  It is a shame we have so much disruption in the main part of the house as we are closed as B&B and having to turn business away.  Anyway we have the finish to look forward to.
