Major changes afoot

As I mentioned yesterday we now have a scaffolding tower outside the house. As if the builder want to out-do the roofers we have two inside!

Plastering 21.10.13 055Plastering has started in the upper bedrooms, so things will be looking very bleak & brown around here for a while. Bleak and brown but oh so smooth. The dressing room adjacent to the master bedroom and the master guest bedroom are currently getting replastered.

Plastering 21.10.13 072There is touching up of plaster work about the house. For thicker plastering like around the sockets it will take a lot longer to dry so it is great the team are getting ahead of themselves.

Plastering 21.10.13 080I can only imagine that this is either the team’s to-do list (which has nothing on my to-do list) or a recipe for plaster.

Plastering 21.10.13 079I can give you a plaster recipe – all it takes is a little bit of this….

Plastering 21.10.13 065And a lot of that….

    • It really is a long process to get them back to the plaster, prep the surface and then skim the whole wall. I think the ceilings are going to be especially challenging. I am glad we have the pro’s in for this one. 😉
