Weekend work – Sunday 5th March 2017 – phase 1 and 2
Phase 1 work this weekend – Tony (brother-in-law) has fitted handles to bathroom and kitchen door and has begun to tile the kitchen (white tiles!)
Phase 2 work this weekend – Paul has been working on the upstairs, beginning the painting of the ceiling in the new upstairs bedroom in readiness for Joe to return and fit the lights.
Handles now in place on door to kitchen from utility and door to new family bathroom. Fitted by Tony
The start of the tiling in the kitchen – thanks Tony!
This is what is called the ‘back buttering’ of tiles. It ensures a thin even coverage of the cement
New white tiles with spacers
Tiling starts from the centre of the cooker and works out the way in both directions
Spirit levels are essential
