Day 40 was a complete shut-in day, which means the cats had to stay in one room with me. It was also one of the first days that work actually had to be done in the room with us. Having re-arranged the furniture for P the plumber to change the radiator, Ruby discovered she could get into the top shelf of the bookcase.
Water staining behind the old radiator. I managed to get a coat of paint over it before P hung the new radiator.

The plumber’s adhesive of choice.
New radiator in the future guest bedroom as well. Rosie with her favourite bell on a pom-pom
Ruby getting bored halfway through the day.
It was also time to say goodbye to the top floor bathroom dormer window.
It too has seen better days.
New frame going in.
Sad old window.
Temporary sheeting and boarding while the window is being made.
The bath is slowly taking a tour of the house. It began in the future en suite, then went into the master bedroom, was moved into the bathroom and now sits in Mark’s future study. It will be fitted eventually.
The recesses for the en suite shower being formed.
The cast iron radiator getting some undercoat.
£1000 worth of lead has been delivered for the dormer roof repairs. Each of those rolls takes two men to lift.
