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…
To rescue the situation we have overlaid a new plywood layer to stiffen the building and also hide the original horror.
Obviously, all my own work! A final coat of plasterboard will then be required, before Mike fires up his plastering trowel and gets skimming.
But I hope we can all agree it looks a bit more like a building site now, less like a demolition site.
