Day 196 – Thursday 4th May 2017 – LAST DAY of work on phase 2

Day 196 – Thursday 4th May 2017  – LAST DAY of work on phase 2

Workmen finished today on Springdale after 196 days of men on site.  Work has been on going since June 26th 2016.  Plumber – Marcus Kelly and his mate Josh completed their work on the upstairs bathroom and radiators in the sunroom, bedroom and study.  Their work looks first class.  Springdale is now a totally different place to the house we bought over 2 years ago.

Internal work is still to be completed, but this will be on going for some time.

Pictures of the upstairs bathroom work can be seen below.
