PROGRESS

 

 
Just a few snapshots of the studio in progress. One week away, the right crew in place. Lots got done, maybe not as visible from these images, but I am very happy. We are on target and better be, as the first testers are arriving mid January....we would not want to have them sleep in a mess.
 
The electrician laid his cables and evacs for stove hood and bathroom, the very well insulated floor has been poured and they started with the insulation of the ceiling already.
The most important progress however was the plumbing.
Very happy to report that it looks much better than before. No more wastepipe running through the middle of the room, all neatly tucked away where they belong, above beams and behind walls.
 
Now waiting for the door guy to repair the stone work and rehang the renovated and now double glazed entrance door.
Can we be done by Christmas? I think so.
 

 
 
NEW FLOOR IS POURED. WELL INSULATED UNDERNEATH

 
EQUALLY WELL INSULATED CEILING

REROUTED PIPES, NOT GOING DIAGONAL ACROSS THE ROOM ANYMORE

LOADS OF PLUGS AND ELECTRICAL

 
AND THE BATHROOM HAS VENTILATION

Looking great. Nice to know
you have a crew upon whom you
can depend. The fun starts
after the drywall is hung.

The crew accomplished a lot. I would think the work will be done by Christmas. I can feel your happiness and excitement; I am excited for you and can't wait to see it all decorated already.

How pleasant to have progress, eh? Feels very hopeful, I would think...

We are very excited. The appliances, mattresses, some furniture have been ordered already.
Not a rush job, it has to be functional for visitors.

Sometimes getting this sort of work done is frustrating and depressing: 'Will it ever end?'
But 15 years down the line when you come to sell the place, the quality of the work, fixtures and fittings will be reflected in the sales' prices.
Well worth the effort!
