Build Day #45

IMG_2825Today the hot water system joined the boiler. It all looks very complex. I will have to ask P the plumber what those small white and red cylinders are for.

IMG_2823A toilet bowl has made it into the toilet to try the room out for size.

IMG_2826This sink will be joining it one day.

IMG_2821The future recesses in the en suite shower were boarded.

IMG_2824The ceiling in Mark’s future study was boarded over now that the leaky dormer window above has been taken care of.

IMG_2828The skip is close to overflowing. There were also lots of deliveries of carpenter’s materials: timber, skirtings, architraves and such.

IMG_2829This morning I went downstairs with my good camera (all of the blog shots are taken with my iPad Mini) to take some more arty shots of the front door. Unfortunately, P the painter had already stripped it further and given it an undercoat – by 8am! Not to worry.

I have also been negotiating with my local tile retailer for the purchase of bathroom and en suite tiles.

T the kitchen man dropped by to do final measurements for the kitchen. The cabinets should arrive in week’s time and then the following week is allocated for the fitting! It’s hard to believe that we will soon have a proper kitchen again – with a dishwasher! The granite worktops will still need to be templated, cut and delivered, plus I’m not sure how ready the electrics are, so it may well be another month before the kitchen is functioning.

  1. Shame about the front door. Maybe the iPad photo you have can be blown up and cropped as you have on your site. You won’t know yourselves when you move back into the rest of the house!!!

  2. The water for your radiators would be a much higher temperature than the water you’d use for bathing or dishes, or whatever. House water and heating water would be two completely different systems here in the US (by law). Not sure how things are done in the UK. I’m guessing that the tanks are because you have a kitchen and perhaps a bathroom on the first floor, and bathrooms on the upper floors as well. They’d require a higher water pressure. Just a guess. I’m curious to know what you find out though.
