… end of Day 2


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.

… not finished


As I expected, there is still looks to be a bit to do. It’s supposed to be watertight and should be okay for light showers, so fingers crossed. They are back tomorrow morning, and we’re hoping that they get it finished in the morning. I’m not so sure. The roof tiling plates are still in their plastic wrapping and the old patio door is still in place. There’s also the beading that hasn’t even been started yet. Mrs H is having her nails doing tomorrow and we were supposed to be out for lunch. Not holding my breath.

We are expecting the plasterer on Friday and the electrician is due on Monday. Tuesday is the day it all gets signed off, hopefully and then there is just finance agreement to sign. We are paying over three years, which is supposed to be interest free, but as the sales rep said, “nothing is really free” so the interest is probably built into the final cost.

Watch this space …
