Building Progress ~ May 2009

Category: Barn Conversion Journal June 16th, 2009 by mbc

May has been about two things – painting and tiling. The main bedroom needs finishing and then the second bedroom and dressing area need painting – and that’ll be it, first coat done! Coverage upstairs doesn’t seem as good as down, not sure if that’s to do with the plaster or the off-white paint, but a second coat will definitely be needed.

Tiling has gone well, but slowly. It’s now in a position where half the cubicle in the main bathroom needs completing and much of the back wall of the ensuite (I must post some photographs). Then it’s onto the messy, somewhat dreaded, but telling (telling in terms of if it’s a job well done), grouting. I hope to have that done by the end of June.

We should be in a position to get the heating system including the solar panels up and running in June – should be an exciting times (well more exciting than bl**dy painting and tiling).

(I’m not sure those dreams I had last month of lime pointing are going to come to fruition this year – too much to do indoors.)
