all ready for tiling!
to help not falling down stairs
my friend the tile cutter
a work in progress
with a little ( a lot actually) help from my friends Kim and Adrian I now have knowledge and (some) skills in tiling and had a very productive weekend. Mastered the tile cutter and used a grinder for the first time! The en-suite floor and most of the skirting is done, rest of skirt and grout to go, floor in toilet done and floor and walls in bathroom started. I really wished I'd had an extra few days to keep going, I hate leaving a job half finished.... but will have to wait now, probably till nearly easter.
This week the floors are being sanded and sealed and then we can build the kitchen - more DIY with the help of my parents this time. Easter will be busy but fun and hopefully I can move in very soon after.....
Mum and Graeme also started the painting - they are very good at it and I am lucky to have so much help. But maybe they are just trying to get their spare room back :-)
