So the floor 3 bathrooms are nearly built. The shower enclosure is tiled and installed – after the rather scary moment when we eventually worked out that if we turned one element upside down the enclosure would fit perfectly. Installation instructions – who reads them?!?
The water has now been connected, so my job next week will be to infill the space above with insulation matting followed by plywood and plasterboard.
This photo represents great news, because with the bath and shower fitted, it only remains to complete the insulation and plastering on a weird bit on floor 3 before we can move to floor 2 for building. We still need to paint and outfit floor 3, but we thought it would be best if we finished all the heavy building work before we start on the twiddly bits. So I went for a celebration walk around the front and saw this. Tonight I will leave you with a lovely view from the car park – as the sun prepared to set today it lit up the car park magnificently. Shame I was too late to capture it fully.
we now move to two days in the cafe before we get back to work next Tuesday. It the weather is good, I plan to be in the garden as we have Rhododendron ponticum to kill off, but if the weather is poor, I can feel insulation calling me.
