So, I was going to take my camera out today and play, but I was overcome with ‘you should be doing the house’ type feelings. This lead to me… doing the house. I’ve got other stuff that needs doing too, which I shall do once I’ve had a bit of a rest. Anyhow, house progress photos are here.
It looks like the plaster in the back bedroom is not quite as shonky as that on the stairs, but it’s pretty rough in places. Since I just want to paint it, that’s a bit of a bugger. I suspect I’m going to get to spend a fair few hours in there doing my best impersonation of the filler bunny. Lots of PVA and filler will be spread and then much sanding. I also want to convert the only single socket to a double. That’s about it for the second bedroom, I think. I might put a phone point in there too, since it’s meant to be doubling as an office.
I think I’ve also worked out the furniture layout in there. So, that’s good. I think :-)
I’m starting to think about doing much of the rest of the work too. And organising and planning that. Some of it’ll be a bit of a struggle – especially doing stuff like relaying the floor in here (to-be-bathroom), but I want to shave as much off in the way of costs as I can. Anyway, so that’s the news :)
