Week 5 of loft conversion

Some more progress this week but it’s going to take another couple of weeks to finish off.  We’re still waiting on plumbers to do their bit; they turned up for an hour on Thursday, had a cup a soup but did nothing much other than try to phone Dean to demand money before doing any more work.  We have supplied the suite but the plumbers wanted money for pipe work and other materials, I can’t imagine it would add up to much but I’m sure there was a principle at stake,coupled with the fact that they were keen to move to a more lucrative job elsewhere.  We have had to order another shower tray with a waste hole that is not positioned directly over a joist.  The builders/plumbers are always keen to have you supply the suite so that they do not have to find the cash to do so, but it is a little annoying that neither the foreman nor the plumber have given us the necessary guidance to buy the correct tray.
As well as spending Monday and Tuesday finishing off a few little things, Dean and Stuart installed the replacement bannister and balustrading.  The Plasters worked Wednesday and Thursday and we have already sanded down the bedroom walls ready for painting tomorrow. – I can’t wait!
