They didn’t quite finish today. One of the window boards had been damaged and was too short. So the two lads are coming back in the morning to fit a new piece. The plasterer is also coming tomorrow to do the final insulated plasterboards in the roof. There seems to be quite a bit of plastering to do, but hopefully they should be all done early afternoon.
The issue with the three red wires that had been cut was sorted by the electrician. We have no real idea what happened but it is thought that the initial wiring problem was from when the conservatory was first built. Then when we had new outside lights installed, that particular electrician had not installed the lights properly. He also fixed our problem with the alarm system. We have got his details, as a good electrician that can be trusted, can be hard to find.
They are back again and right on time at 08:30. It’s very wet, so they opted to take the old patio door out. Problem: while cutting the frame, one of them cut through three wires. What is a strange thing is that all three wires are red! The electrician is coming to sort it out.
Tried contacting the alarm company, as we have/had a ‘tremble’ sensor on the door. The alarm company not interested as they did not install the original system. They wanted to charge a huge amount just to come out and look. It was going to be around £200.00 before they did anything so we are thinking just hide the sensor under the plasterwork. The main room sensor picks up movement where the old door was I don’t think we need it.
Mrs H has gone off to get her nails fixed and to get a few things done in Wetherby. That’s going to take a couple of hours at least. I overheard the fitters talking and they seem to think that they will have done all their work by around 15:30. Given how much work they have done this morning, I think that could be right.
Tomorrow, the plasterer is due. I’ll be glad when he’s done his work, as it means we will be able to get into the garage again. It’s always been a bit of a tight squeeze in there anyway, what with all the ‘stuff’ we already have, but now we have all the plaster-board in there ready to be used tomorrow. There is so little space, that I cannot even get to the cup-board where my beer is kept !!!
