The house is now well on its way to looking very pretty indeed! As the soffit and fascia go on, the outside lights are attached, and the scaffolding is dismantled, it really feels like the end of the road for the building work. Dad even cut the grass and planted daffodil bulbs for the spring!
Externally, the levels need to be raised, so we don’t always have a two foot height difference between the inside and the outside. How we do this is still a mystery to me, but with the help of rock, steps and in time some kind of patio or decking, we’ll figure it out.
Once we get the electricity connected, the house will be a hive of activity again, but at the moment there is a little bit of a lull, waiting for the screed to dry! The heating needs to be on for at least a week, at which time the screed man will do a moisture test, and will hopefully give us the all clear to start painting and tiling.
