Week118 - 12Jan04

This week..

  • The 2nd floor landing is completed
  • Utility room fitting begins

The 2nd Floor Landing

First task this week was to fill & decorate the landing followed by fitting the architrave, skirting, some trimming around the stairs and the final staining.

The Utility Room

Next I turned my attention to the basement and in particular the Utility room. This is to be purely functional room utilising the sink & unit that we removed from the Bungalow and some new basic wall & base units.

BT's Home Highway ISDN Update

You will recall the on-going major dispute with BT (see Week 111 and all weeks since). It has been unusable since May.

They responded this week saying they had reviewed my case and found that they were not responsible for any of my problems. I wrote back by return asking how they reached this conclusion since their own technicians spent several hours analysing my computers and found beyond doubt that their (BT's) software was causing and had caused all my problems. They telephoned the next day to say that they did not have this information when they reviewed my case (despite the fact that I had sent all the documentation!!) and that they were reconsidering again!

To be continued.....

From the Archives....

So we don't forget what we have achieved here is a quick look at what we were doing one and two years ago.

Two years age ( Week 14 on the left) the tiling of the garage begins

One year ago,  (Week 66 on the right) we fit the wall units in Mum's kitchen

Next week:

  • Continue fitting out the Utility Room (connect taps, fit work tops etc)
  • Prepare for the final NHBC inspection!
  • Have our first Dinner Party for some of those that have helped to build the house
