Lock Up

Week 8.

Wow! Loving the progress so far. This week the internal walls and ceilings were completed, followed by plaster set and cornices.
I thought as the walls were thickening in that it would start to feel smaller but it doesn't, it actually feels bigger because I take more notice of the separate rooms and the turn of the entry hall into the kitchen and the turn into the hallway because I can no longer see the other rooms through timber frames!

We went to have a sneak peak today at 10am but there was a tradesman in our house starting on the kitchen and bathroom cupboards so we couldn't get in for a look. We returned after 6pm and he was still there! We managed to get our photo fix not long after he left and the ensuite/bathroom cabinets were completed and there had been a start on the kitchen.

So we are officially past Lock Up and into the Fittings stage.
Mr SS advised that the fittings stage of cabinets, cupboards, bath etc will be completed by the end of the month.

There are just a couple of windows that need bricks underneath which should be finished by Monday.
So good!
