I was at the house at 0700 this morning pulling back underlay and pulling up floorboards. Neil the joiner arrived at about 0745 and got stuck into the skirting in the living room. If it looks alright I’ll put down some plywood this evening so that the room is at least clean for the furniture arriving on Tuesday. The fireplace will not be arriving until December so we do need to clean this room up as much as possible just in case Christmas comes and goes with no firepalce.
The plumber – a new one this time – arrived at 0900 and is busy hanging radiators at the moment and will hopefully be finished by the time the carpet guys get back after lunch. Once that’s done and he can start the heating again we should be sorted.
Then the botched kitchen counter is coming back on Thursday to be fitted – hopefully correctly this time. Really looking forward to that.
The house is still full of boxes and boxes of clothes and miscellaneous crap but we will be sorting that out when we are back in.
