On Monday 29th November, we ripped out the kitchen in the first two pictures, and tackled a lump in the floor, which we smashed out, and re- concreted.
On the Tuesday, I spent a couple of hours counter battening, and levelling the ceiling, which was 2 inches out of level. On the same say, the kitchen was rewired.
On Wednesday, the plumber did his alterations, which included re-routing some pipes, so there were no pipe boxes (a pet hate of mine). I plasterboarded the ceiling that afternoon. We draught proofed too.
On Thursday, the kitchen was completely re-plastered.
We then disappeared for three days, while the plaster dried.
The kitchen was delivered on Monday 5th December.
Over the next five days, the kitchen was fitted, all plumbing and electric work, finished, radiator swap and new flooring. I even made some shelves under the stairs so Annette has somewhere to store her home made jams and chutneys! They’re fabulous. She sells them in an honesty box!
