All the plastering in the extension is done, and we are ready for screed tomorrow, after the addition of a little extra insulation on the concrete slab.

B-Day+156: A lot more plaster

Wow, our solitary plasterer was replaced by a plasterer plus assistant/son. This double act made a good deal of progress today, plastering most of the main extension and ceiling – a good day’s work!

Here’s a wibbly-wobbly distorted photo of their handywork (with a missing patch of photo in the corner).

B-Day+152: Some plaster

The downstairs WC/shower and utility room are now both roughly plastered – awaiting the top finish.

B-Day+150: Patio doors and no-show plasterer

After a couple of weeks of frustrating inactivity we got excited today at the prospect of the plastering starting.  Unfortunately the plasterer decided he had something better to do than plastering, so we are still left with brick and blockwork walls.  We are promised a more reliable plasterer will be with us bright and early tomorrow morning – we’ll see…

On the plus side, the patio doors were installed today, so we are now watertight!

Here I am testing the new patio doors.  They passed my test.
