The loft!

10 and a half weeks ago (but 7 and a half working weeks due to Christmas and ice/snow) work started on our loft conversion!  It feels like a lot longer ago than that!!!!!  It’s coming on but feels very slow!! 

This is the en suite wall…..

The roof and windows are done…..although the windows really annoy me!

Those black strips aren’t tape to show glass is in there…it is a metal strip which apparently is compulsory since we live in a conservation area….and is in all conservation grade velux windows!!!!!  It will just catch the dirt and just looks like they forgot to take the tape off!!  I hope any extremely low flying aircraft appreciate it because they are the only ones who will actually be able to see it!!!!!!!!!!

The room itself is now plastered and floored with just the fitting and tiling of the en suite and final fix electrics and plumbing to go.  They then moved onto the plastering of the underneath of the new stairs which run above the old stairs.  It is basically a curved ceiling which are apparently hard to do and ours was almost done when it decided to give way and so wet plaster was everywhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  The plasterers did a pathetic attempt to clean up and the ran for the hills not to be seen again until Monday…nice!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a funny photo of Noah retrieving wood for our fire from the skip outside!!!!!!!!

  1. Oh Byrney I bet it’s just going to look lovely! Sorry to hear about the plaster falling but I guess it’s better now than after they’ve finished. Will I finally get a grand tour of your new house once the loft is done?
