Renovation (part 3)

It’s been a while since my last update… stuff has been happening but very slowly and I  have some pictures but there’s nothing really visibly changed but here’s an update on the spend so far:

  • Previous Spend – £12.75
  • More Plumbing bits / Goggles – £5.98
  • Metal stud work – £35.42
  • Plumbing suppliers, labour and radiator – £310
  • Insulation batch 1 – £117.07
  • Plasterboard – £151.10

Total spend to date – £632.32

Ouch, I was all proud of the low figures I was spending but now I actually have to start buying stuff and paying tradesmen to put things back together again! Next big cost is the electrics :-O Anyway, here are some pictures of the progress so far:

Decided the upstairs bathroom stuff had to go!



Then I finished removing the rest of the plasterboard ceiling in the utility room:

ceiling-be-gone Where I found a little wasps nice :-O thankfully an old one!


Then finished removing the tiles in the kitchen and prepared to dump the greasiest old cooker in the world! half of it’s gone, still got half :)


Bit of metal stud work put up so this section can be boxed in properly, also redone the radiator pipes while here and got a new radiator.


One of a number of replaced/rerouted pipes:


Uncle has put up more stud work and I’ve a load of insulation to put in and loads of plasterboard being delivered next week… the question is, will it be at least liveable by August?!?
