Progress!

Things are moving forwards nicely so far this week – and it’s only Monday! Lots of painting is being done, with vast quantities of raw plaster being covered with 1st coats of paint. While paint’s going up downstairs I’m taking advantage of a few spare floor boards that had been left in the loft to…

Busy week ahead…!

Just a quick update to say that a busy week is coming up… Progress today includes lots of ground work to prepare the way – getting a couple of rooms nearly ready to finish off when a floor sander arrives on monday! Window sills have been painted & coving “installed” in both main bedrooms. Tomorrows…

Watching paint dry…?

… we’d happily take watching paint dry over watching plaster dry out. Paint never seem to take that long to dry to the point that you can move on and do something with the wall. Fresh plasterwork on the other hand seems to take forever to properly dry out!!! Ah well… plenty more to be…

Decorating progress

Now the plaster’s done, it’s time to crack on with the rest of the house. The first couple of coats of paint have been applied to the main bedroom to seal & cover the newly dry plaster, and this weekend’s job is to start getting the proper top-coats of paint done along with all the…

Plasterwork finally done!

Reached a bit of a milestone over the last weekend – all of the replastering we needed to do for the moment has now finally been completed. The Lounge has now been finished, along with the hall, staircase walls and upstairs landing walls! The biggest benefit of this work being finished is that it means…

More mountains moved!

Great progress today – starting to feel like the house is slowly coming together now. Lounge plastering is well underway; bedroom 1 has had all of the remaining mess/carpet tape removed along with the first coat of paint on the replastered walls & ceiling and the remaining paintwork in bedroom 2 completed. We’ve also made…

Moving forwards

Things finally seem to be building up a solid head of steam & are starting to move forwards….! Bedroom 1’s new plaster’s nearly dry and we’ve made inroads today into getting the room finished. The carpet’s been pulled up to reveal a floor that has tons of potential if sanded & varnished; skirting has been…

Quick Update…

Haven’t posted anything to here for a while, but work is needless to say very much ongoing! Since the last post bedroom 1 has been replastered (and is still currently slowly drying out before we can paint it!); walls & ceiling in bedroom 2 have been repainted; walls in the “en-suite” have been repainted and…

Lounge stripped

Just a quick update: Lounge has now been completely wallpaper stripped & prepared for replastering. All looking a touch bare at the moment but that should hopefully start to change rapidly now.   Next stop is to tidy up what appears to be a patched-over serving hatch (!) and to remove a window seat/ cupboard…
