OK, so I’m starting with grapes. Not sure why, just had a lot of time to take snap shots of the garden as we just couldn’t get a decent WiFi signal at the beginning of this week. Whaaaaaats up! So now we’re back in Blighty I’m updating my blog. This was the picture on our return to LBA early on Thursday morning. What no sun! We’d got so used to 30 degrees that 12 just didn’t cut it.
Anyway back to the building work.
You need the right tools! This magnificent red contraption (a dry wall lifter) is a must when you are fixing plasterboard to the ceiling. Hubby and I were chuckling, just imagining ourselves doing this job without the correct tools. I know there would be lots of cursing and blaming each other!!! Just as well our builder is putting the ceilings up.
This would have been hubby and me with the 4 x 4 propping up the board and one of us having a very achy arm/shoulder the next day.
Upstairs we now have a toilet and the shower tray has been installed. We’ve also purchased the shower, awaiting installation, and the sink/unit which has been installed temporarily, this we bought from IKEA last year.
We’ve now chosen the tiles for the en-suite, together with the wooden floor for the bedroom but because of the French holidays, we won’t be able to order these until September, so who knows when they’ll be fitted😦
Downstairs we’re going for a traditional French style tile and not sure of the pattern yet. Again this won’t be available until September. It would seem sensible then, to wait and decide on the covered area and patio tiles when these have been laid.
