Conservatory Re-Build – Day 19


Weatherwise today has been truly awful. It has rained, and rained, all day long. Sometimes with the power of a monsoon. Luckily, since the roof and glazing has been installed it means that the guys doing the plasterboarding can get on regardless. It also meant that the lack of an outside tap didn’t impede their progress and also let them demonstrate their ingenuity.

The guys created a temporary water feature which saved them taking up the flooring to get access to the water pipe since our outside pipe has not been installed yet.

Visually the build has changed again significantly. The guys have almost completed the plaster boarding.

The electrician was in attendance this morning and has run his cables and fitted the socket and switch boxes into position. He will be back, when the plastering is completed, to wire in the sockets and switches as well as fitting the down lighter units.

The guys told me that our kitchen window and back door are being replaced tomorrow.

Also the bi-fold doors are to be installed.

We had a visit from the plumbers earlier and they hope to come back tomorrow to remove the radiator and prepare the pipes for the replacement radiator. This will, once the kitchen window is done, allow the guys to finish the plaster boarding. Then the true plaster work can begin.

So, tomorrow should be another huge day.
