Just a quick update! I don’t have my camera at the moment as its been whisked off to Israel for a while, so no new photos. However LOTS is happening on site at the moment. The pictures will have to come later.
So after all the insulation was put in, the builders put the first layer of plaster on the house. That you will have seen in the last post. Now the whole house has had its final coat of plaster, which has the final colour included, so the outside of the house is almost in its completed state. It’s lovely!!! The final few slates will be finished tomorrow!
Inside, a vapour barrier has been installed on the external walls, and over that the plaster board. As of this afternoon, almost all of downstairs had been plaster boarded. And it is a huge change. No longer can we see from one side of the house to the other. For some reason, now that the plaster board is in, the windows really stand out. The house is starting to look like a real house now, and we get a much better feel for the spaces within and how we’ll mould ourselves into them. It’s very exciting!
It’s also been sunny on site the last few days which has been a lovely change from the dark, damp days we had been having.
The plumbing is almost done, and next week the plastering will start inside… then I think its the underfloor heating..
We are nearing the end now, hard to believe in such a short space of time! 🙂
