Day 137 – Sunday 22nd January 2017 – back to phase 1

Day 137 – Sunday 22nd January 2017 – back to phase 1 – near completion of the new family bathroom

Fitments all in place, door needs painting or varnishing and also handle required.

Interesting to compare it with how it used to look in September 2016.  See the transformation below.

Day 56 – Monday 26th September 2016

Wet day – Work limited to undercover.  Skylight gap previously covered in tarpaulin was recovered with board.  This will be fitted and sealed within the next few days, so should soon be water tight.  Hole was cut for doorway to new bathroom.  Bricks laid to fill gap over new lintel above the new back door.  Old bedroom window now blocked in.  Photos below.
