Slow, slow, quick, quick.......

Week 12 (Days 55 - 59)
This week was very slow in terms of progress and not very much happened at all - I did tell Tony and things improved the following week.
The major change was the big switch over to our new boiler on Thursday and this went very smoothly apart from 1 leak in the utility room. The only problem is because Loris hasn't finished the wiring yet we don't have the timer set up yet so we need to turn it on and off manually. The old boiler was taken out of the kitchen and the radiator was put back on the wall temporarily until we can get the underfloor heating sorted out. Unfortunately Al hasn't connected the pipes to it yet!

Buster and Ed fitted 1 door frame and made a start on ply boarding the walk in wardrobe - now you know what I mean about it being a slow week! They did have a big tidy up though after I had a big rant on Friday - they even mopped the kitchen floor, wonder if they want a full time job?

Week 13 (Days 60 - 63)
Yet another Bank Holiday and luckily things seemed to move a bit faster. Richie finally finished rendering the outside of the house ready for painting next week. He also finished plaster boarding the en suite and started to plaster it, I was a bit disappointed that he didn't finish it but apparently he didn't feel well (it was a very sunny Friday!).
The sun tunnel extension arrived and so this was also finally completed - I keep thinking someones left the light on now though!
Buster and Ed got the door frames in upstairs and got started on the skirting boards and architrave, it makes a big difference and it feels like its starting to come together now.
The tiler arrived Thursday and was amazingly fast. I'm really pleased with the tiles, so just grouting and skirting to do now.
