Top of the SVP just fitted.

More plastering done. The amount was moisture it creates is incredible.

So both bathrooms were plastered, the kitchen, dining room and master bedroom.

They have all had 3 coats of white paint. Wether things will change colour in the future I dont know. I'm not the paint decider, but its gives a nice base.

 

I then thought I'd give tiling a go. We bought 75m2 of tiles for the kitchen and dining room. And 42m2 for the bathrooms.

Started with the main bathroom. Tiled the walls, then the floor.

Seems to be ok.

The floor is a similar pattern but darker.

The main bathroom is not at the stage where it just needs the shower screen putting in and some silicone round the window.

 

So next I thought I'd do the kitchen floor.

 

Mocked up length and width

Used a fricking "laser" to get a straight line and got started.

Took it all the way to the end of where the darker floor is on here.

As that was then in it was time to do the kitchen. Got myself a track saw for cutting cabinets. And got my brother to help bring them through into the kitchen and put the feet on but then it was down to me.

20210125-194327.jpg

 

Did round the fridge first.

20210126-221137.jpg

 

Still needs trim round the fridge, plinths and end panel at this point.

20210127-202142.jpg

 

 

Then did the ones where the oven will be. fcuk me are these heavy.

Should have gotten one of them 100mm smaller really and made a filler panel, would have been much easier to fit.

20210128-212938.jpg

 

At this point it still needs end panels, plinths, cornice etc etc.

20210128-232746.jpg

 

Then started on the island.

I put the rear panel on yesterday.

20210201-132207.jpg

 

 

Thats where I am right now.

Still bits to do in the kitchen but at the stage we can get some companies out to price up worktops.

Probably going for some type of quartz but we'll see what they have.

 

Next job when I finish on nights this week will be to sort out the en suite I think.

 

We have lights at the minute but those circuits are just on plugs, still no sockets or proper consumer unit.

Piece Of p*ss with an SDS drill with a spade/tile attachment.

Then ran it over the floor to take up the old adhesive.

Stayed away from wren for obvious reasons. Got a quote from Magnets but even with the super duper platinum trade I know the branch manager discount I can get they were still £5k more than DIY kitchens.

 

DIY have been fine, found a couple of panels were damaged but I contacted them and they had new ones delivered within a few days.

Either transit or storage at the factory before sending them out.

 

The damage was like this. £150 panel and they just said no probs, a new one will be with you in 3-3 days.

Hello Mr Zoobeef,

They are the first pictures of the re-build I have seen.

Very impressive work! Looking forward to seeing it all when this thing is over....

And why do I get the feeling that you might now fancy a career in the building trade? 🤔

Best wishes,

Jon

Cheers Jon, you'll have to come up for a beer or a coffee when you can.

 

Theres too much "make it fit" in the building trade. I prefer cars where somethings designed to fit nicely.

I'm not sure on the make, they sell it in big drums designed for roofs though.

We still have the garage roof to do so ill have a look then.

Can't wait to get that done, then board out the garage with a remote garage door.

 

 

Oh yeah I forgot to say, replaced every radiator in the house but some of them were newish, so I fitted one in the garage. :D

To tell you the truth, I want a bigger piece of land. The front and rear gardens aren't very big so its the only downside to the house.

 

My plan if things fall into place are to buy next door to rent out (when the old lady dies) then buy a place with a nice bit of land and rent both these out.

Thats a 5-10 year plan though. Definitely want to live in it first!
