Day Fourteen: Watertight (almost)

Today’s main task was to put up the bathroom roof. Fortunately it proved rather simple due to the guidance of Rob, the plumber, who cut the tin sheets for us so that we merely had to slot them into position and screw them into the joists. As I write this, it is raining rather hard outside so I can rest in peace knowing no water is getting in!

Once the roof was up, I insulated the bathroom walls, painted the kitchen with special sealant to prevent nasty tobacco stains from showing, plastered the fireplace and sanded the mantle. Mum painted the skirting boards in both bedrooms and dad tried out the new grinder on the villaboard for lining the bathroom walls. Works a treat! Hopefully this time next week we will have a ‘real’ bathroom.
