As we mentioned in the Wall Saga, we needed to finish fixing our electrics before we could properly start decorating the Lounge/Diner. Whilst Kate’s Dad and Mike sorted out the gaping hole in our soggy wall, our lovely electrician set to work on the rest of the room.
You may recall that our electrics were some what of a death trap when we moved in, particularly in the kitchen, and that the emergency repairs had left us without power to the under-stairs cupboard or half of the lounge. So, the electrics needed fixing and they were an obvious first step in the lounge/diner journey.
We blogged a while ago about our Kitchen and the Bodged Electrics, which left the room in a bit of a sorry state. So, whilst we were sorting the study out over Easter, Kate’s Dad came down to help us finish off the Kitchen.
Tiling and Tidying Up Behind the Fridge:
When we moved in to the house we found that there was a large patch of plaster missing on the wall behind the fridge. There were also several large holes and channels where wires had been chased through the walls in the past.
Here’s an attempt to bring you up-to-date with what’s already happened at the raggedy house.
We completed on the house 6 weeks ago. We turned up to find out that the vendors hadn’t moved out yet, despite us having the keys. Interesting (thanks for that estate agents)! After an hour spent at a friends’ house, we were finally able to get into the house.
