At last the painting has started!
I went to the house today to chat with Florence about the stairs and to my surprise the first coat of paint had already been applied to all the rooms upstairs. This is one of the benefits of spray painting, it’s so fast. It also leaves and nice even finish. The painter sanded all the walls first to ensure the finish was nice and smooth. It looked like a winter wonderland!
Most of it was already dry! The whole job will most likely be done by the end of the week.
I also had to call David, our heating installer, to figure out how to turn down the heating. The last two mornings the house was 27 and 25 degree’s and the builders are finding it way too hot. It’s been on a floor drying programme since it was turned on about two weeks ago, but now that the floor is dry we just don’t need it on 24/7. Hopefully now the temperature will settle to about 18 or 19 degrees. I’m told once the thermostats go in, the heat pump will pretty much regulate the temperature on its own, but we’re going to have to learn how to use the system. If its not set correctly, it will eat electricity, and that defeats the purpose of geothermal.
Here are a few pictures of the painting so far!
