While I was at work last week , the lip at the front of the house resulting from not pouring the screed deep enough was dealt with. One part has a slope and the other has a very nice edging board in Douglas Fir, which I sanded on Saturday morning.
Window cills have been cut and shaped, though only two have been fitted and the wall lights have been mostly connected up.
Ewan's made a wardrobe door, which matches the bedroom ceiling and looks fantastic.
So far this week, we've started to tile the kitchen splashback and the splashback behind the kitchen sink and grouted the utility room tiles and the floor tiles beside the French doors.There's loads more tiling to go though.
Ewan's made chunky Douglas Fir boxes for the living room wall and another one for the bathroom wall, so the wall lights can now be connected.
The bathroom now has a mirrored cabinet too
We've also scraped the lime off the inside of the window frames, plastered over any cracks and then touched up the paintwork - it sounds (and is) a tedious thankless task, but it really does make the rooms
We have swallows and house martins nesting in the eaves - 5 in all. We can't lime-wash the exterior until the babies fledge.
look much more finished.
Yesterday was Willy's birthday and we celebrated with those who happened to be around. This amounted to the neighbours plus 2 volunteers, 4 visiting Swedes, Katy's brother from France and another couple of visitors. It was not a very late night, not a huge amount was drunk (at least not by Wendy and judging by the number of empties someone must drunk a fair amount) and there was no dancing, but I still have a sore head.
Today was a bit of a slow start, kind of morning after blues, but managed to get area round kitchen sink tiled also more lime in gables, maybe write a book "Wendy of Lime Gables". Then back down the road to pick up a hire van tomorrow to take more stuff up in readiness for the real party this weekend.
