Building Progress ~ November 2009

Category: Barn Conversion Journal December 23rd, 2009 by mbc

Finishing treating the untreated oak stairs and banisters is proving a real pain – the banisters along the landing have all been whitened & waxed, but the stairs themselves along with the banisters running down the stairs still need finishing, they’ve been whitened but not waxed. The problem is getting the timing right (never my strong point) and being organised enough to be able to wax the stairs as I’m leaving and not returning at least overnight – haven’t managed that yet.

Skirting boards have now been completed (I managed to source a supply from a different Wickes store in Cardiff) in the main room downstairs and I’m getting the bedroom and dressing area finished ready for the carpet to be fitted in December. My original plan was to put oak flooring down all throughout the whole of upstairs. However, a carpet will be warmer, easier to fit (for me), can be arranged by Christmas (unlike my oak floor that seems to be lost on the high-seas – more on this in future) and will help cut down on the echo-y-ness of the whole place, so seems a sensible option.

The rest of my efforts have been focused on the bedroom~dressing area~en-suite, painting, cleaning and attempting to get as much finished as possible ready for the carpet to be fitted (& Christmas!) in December.
