I am happy to say that the builder has completed his part of the construction. The plasterer has made one visit and is due in tomorrow to sand off. I have put two coats of undercoat on two external walls and the fascia, plus two white top coats on the fascia. I hope to start the top coats on two walls tomorrow.
I will have to fit the guttering and organise a drain layer and someone else to put in a new footpath.
I have an idea of what to buy for the carpet and blinds but will wait till I have painted internally before I organise them. I also have to get the electrician back in to finish off.
