Week80 - 21Apr 2003

Progress this week

Priority continues to be my Parent's end of the house - target finish date their Golden Wedding anniversary on 23 May. This week:

1st a frame is constructed to support the panel & a sloping shelf at the foot of the bath

Next a panel of MDF is fitted and then given a coat of PVA to seal it
I then panel it with the tongue & groove left over from the doors!
and finally add the skirting.
Box in the soil pipe...
-
then tile the walls. As the wall had already been painted it was important to scrape the surface to provide solid adhesion
2 hours work
finally the grouting.
The panel was then stained.
Job done!

Also this week...........

Some boxing in the kitchen...
-
I also converted the street lamp from conventional bulbs to sodium.
The effect is much better and a 75W bulb gives 150W light.
The final plug socket is fitted - number 90! Made up of: Basement-7, ground floor-39, 1st floor-33 & 2nd floor-11!

Finally this week we give the new kitchen the ultimate test. We call in a Master chef to make his speciality - Pizza!

The dough...
and the finished product! Cheers!
