Week 4 of the Build

Sep 13

Week 4  13th September 2015

Week 3 passed by without a great deal happening as the builders were only on site for 2 days.

The block work did get done up to the damp proof level and the over site was done but thats about it.

Week 4 however has been fast moving and progress has been good.

Most of the block work is now done, the porch has been demolished, the scaffolding has gone up, one chimney stack has been taken down, the gable end has been removed and the old bedroom walls have been demolished.

We are trying to make sure we keep ahead of the builders and ensure we have done all we need to do, so that they aren’t delayed at all.

Today we have removed the old fire place and boarded it up so that they can get on with demolishing the chimney stack without rubble and dust coming into our lounge.

We have also continued with stripping the bathroom, something we started a couple of weeks ago. The shower tray is now out and one wall has been stripped of tiles which leaves the other tiled wall to strip.

Making a decision on tiles for the bathroom is proving difficult. Whilst we have found some good tiles and have a few samples we are looking at, we are still a bit unsure exactly what to go with.

Yesterday we went to see an Aluk window sample that had been made for us.

We have found that because we want aluminium tilt turn windows, suppliers can supply them but they don’t have them in their showrooms to see and we really wanted to see a working window before going ahead. UK Windows (Surrey) kindly arranged for a sample to be made for us.
