Studding and Plastering(29Jul09)

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

Peter started the stud partition between the Barn and the house today and it’s going to look great. I really think that when the contrast between the old wall and the new plaster is there it will be a great feature.

Dennis finished on time tonight so he plastered the rest of the ceiling in our bedroom and the cupboard – hopefully the walls will be done tomorrow and Friday.

Sue and Peter continued with their section of wall

Sues wall(25Jul09)

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

No more plastering has been done 🙁 – Dennis was working late on Friday evening and also had to work today – I’m working Sunday and Josh is away so nobody to labour……..I carried on with plumbing instead which is very slow crawling around the loft (having trouble with my knees for some reason – poor me!). I can’t believe how hot it is in the loft space.

I also bought the guttering for the front so we can get on with that in between other jobs.

Sue and Peter have been preparing a section of the inside barn wall so that they can pour cement in the middle ready for glass blocks and stud partitions.

Update(23Jul09)

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

We are lacking in progress it seems………..but no, there are lots of little jobs going on such as plumbing, wiring, window cills, badey bladey blah, nothing worth jumping up and down about – but it all adds up in the end….

Anyway, tonight Dennis plastered half of the ceiling in our bedroom. I mixed, cleaned and undid some of the plumbing I did yesterday……..ROME WASN’T BUILT IN A DAY YOU KNOW…………

More Plastering…yawn…(18Jul09)

Saturday, July 18th, 2009

All ready for the finish coat in the master bedroom – the pictures don’t look very good but this is partly because we have filled the room with trestes which makes it look very small……Peter also added the final bits of plasterboard to Josh’s en-suite….

Plastering progress(17Jul09)

Friday, July 17th, 2009


Progress is slow at the moment because I don’t have a lot of time off work, but we have gradually finished plasterbaording the ceiling in Josh’s room, added a little wiring, plumbing etc.

Peter did a great job on the window cils in the master bedroom and downstairs. Tomorrow Dennis will put the base coat on the master bedroom……..0800 start……….

Bex room is finished(13Jul09)

Monday, July 13th, 2009

Tonight Dennis finished Bex room – looks great. We will be doing the master bedroom next so will probably prep during the week and do the plastering at the weekend again.
