The perfect cover up…

Just e brief posting today, since this week’s progress has mostly been of the non-exciting and non-photogenic form.  We have moved lots of waste around, swept and vacuumed, and cleared space.  I have dismantled a couple of old sofas and moved them down from the attic floor – all of this to create more storage space.  And not always successfully – the second, longer sofa was stuck for a surprising length of time at the bottom of some steep steps as I had underestimated the dimensions.

Today’s work was worth a photo or two, though.  You can see below one of the en suite bathroom walls which, for some reason unknown to us, was modified at some time to look like a stencil.  This wouldn’t have mattered so much except it is a structural wall.  It is on the top floor, but even so…

Not entirely sure what was going on here…

To rescue the situation we have overlaid a new plywood layer to stiffen the building and also hide the original horror.

…but we can’t see it now…

Obviously, all my own work!  A final coat of plasterboard will then be required, before Mike fires up his plastering trowel and gets skimming.

…and even less now.

But I hope we can all agree it looks a bit more like a building site now, less like a demolition site.
