All white now

We’ve made more progress than the workmen during week 6.  As you can see from the shots it looks quite good in white.  We’ve found a few patches that we would like the plasters to help us with, in particular an area which used to be part of the back bedroom wall and was previously obscured by a radiator.  Whoever last plastered it last worked around the radiator and this now forms a corridor to the loft staircase so the uneven area is now on view to all.
 
The Plumbers have connected the toilet but we don’t seem to have a seat, Catriona’s chasing it up as an identical model we bought for the downstairs cloakroom came with one.  The second shower tray arrived and has been plumbed in, Dean is working the weekend to finish the stud wall and allow the plumbers to fit and connect the sink on Monday.  We can recommend Screwfix.com who had the tray delivered to us direct from the manufacutrer inside a week when the leadtime was originally quoted as 14 days.  A towel rail was ordered from them on Thursday evening just before 6pm and arrived by 9:30am today, free delivery too and a £5 discount on an already competitive price due to our previous order. 
 
Catriona has been scheming all evening with plans to maximise bathroom and bedroom space.  She’s also had a couple of companies round to measure us up for carpet and we’re looking forward to picking out some designs tomorrow as well as splashing a bit of colour onto some of those white walls.
