Build Day #79


Gloss paint. Ah – the smell of Volatile Organic Compounds wafting through the air – comforting. T the painter was here today working on the breakfast room, kitchen, dining room and en suite.

IMG_3846I had painted most of the en suite myself but had shied away from painting the woodwork, so T painted the door and windows today.

IMG_3848Looking very sharp.


P the plumber installed the bath today, as well as doing various other things.

IMG_3843New pipe stacks are taking shape.

IMG_3841While outside I discovered the new external power socket.

IMG_3842And another external light.

IMG_3840The kitchen is almost finished…six weeks later. The new extractor panel and mantel shelf have been fitted. Looking much better.

IMG_3849I don’t think Oliver is a fan of the smell of gloss paint. He refused to go downstairs for his daily inspection.

Meanwhile we are on night two of no lights on the top floor – every time you switch on an appliance the lights go out, and sometimes they just go out by themselves. It’s not really engendering confidence in my electricians…

  1. Sensible Oliver. Cat noses are much more sensitive than human ones.
    paint odour reduction hints are cut onion and/or a bowl of vinegar, both odourous themselves.
    good luck with the AC/DC which sounds like fuse wire overload issue.
