Blog 58 🏠🌸 Started on the kitchen….tiles around the aga have been removed & put under the cement floor in the chicken run, keeping the wooden units, all doors & drawers have been sanded & oiled. Next pulled the ceiling panels down !! The mess that made was amazing, all because so much dust & dirt came down with the ceiling boards (why didn’t I take photo of the mess !!) The electrics next, needing more power sockets as short of these & spotlights in new ceiling. So being sorted in stages….power sockets & cables recessed into the wall by electrician, plasterer next who is putting up new ceiling, skim the ceiling and we will most probably paint the ceiling ourselves, hate ceiling painting !! Also fill in recessed cable & up to socket edges & then finished, electrician back to drill holes in ceiling to fit spotlights, covers for sockets & then finished.
Waiting on ceiling in kitchen booked for next week so out to garden for next job, to sort shingle area around office & shed. Previous wood edging we had to keep shingle in has rotted away & shingle just spreading on the grass every time you walk on it so sorted with sleepers we had available from the veggie plot so no cost involved to get this far, next needing a step up into the shed & to finish off have found something which ‘sets’ the shingle like glue, maybe will give it a try !👍
Taken out a small conifer tree at end of this plot to left of photo to open up views from office & to let sunshine get to plot better, to finish off edging the veggie plot & flower bed, square off both areas to all match 👍Come on Sunshine ☀️🌻🏡
Electrician back in couple days to add spotlights & sockets👍 👏 and here they are ⤵️ ( some of them in photo ! )
Next to do……ceiling to be painted.
Andy in the garden today to start his decking project. We have an unusual shaped area on the driveway, even to put a car in this area is so tight, thought to have as a seating area, wood ordered & delivered this week so he could make a start.
