Conservatory Rebuild – Day 30 ?


Seem to have lost count of the days since this began. I believe this is Day 30, only counting week days and allowing for the August Bank Holiday.

The end is in sight but there is still much to do.

Conservatory - Tiles down and grouted.

Laying of the floor tiles has continued and the living room floor area is now complete and grouted.

Just needs for the tiles to be cleaned and buffed.

Oh, I forgot that the skirting boards and radiator are still to be fitted.

The lack of plumbing support is becoming an irritant now we have been six weeks without laundry facilities. We are farming our dirty laundry out to family members which is all well and good and we thank them for their support but it isn’t the same as having your own facilities readily accessible.

Forgetting about our personal needs lack of plumbing is now blocking the tile laying in the utility area. If the plumbers were to come and just bring the cold water supply up above floor lever with a service valve then the tiling could proceed.

I could do it myself but two things prevent me from jumping in and doing the job. Firstly I am paying for this work to be done. Secondly, and more importantly, I want the work carried out by a professional person who will be accountable should any problems occur in the future. All in all this is very frustrating.

In addition the lack of a water supply means that the guys are reliant on using our kitchen sink for water to mix cement, tile adhesive etc. etc. With the best will in the world it still means dirt and grime is carried into the house.

The plumbers were supposed to arrive Monday afternoon and / or Tuesday morning. Well here we are on Wednesday morning and still no-show.

Watch this space.
