The last job on the builders list of things to do, was to patch up the pebble dashing on the outside of the house. The two main areas that needed doing were around the bi-folding doors, and where the old back door had been bricked in.
Unfortunately the builders decided to sub-contract this job to the same plasterer who did the kitchen diner. After pebble dashing the old back door, it was clear he was no better at pebble dashing than he was plastering. Our builders agreed that it was a poor effort and that they would remove it and start again.
This time they did it themselves and did a much better job. Why they didn’t just do it in the first place, I don’t know?
We have just started to get quotes for painting the back of house. Hopefully once it is given a fresh lick of white paint it will all blend in nicely!
With the builders all finished, it was now over to us to complete our project.
Next on our list of things to do:
1. Choose and fit the cornice
2. Paint the walls and ceiling
3. Choose and fit the wooden floor
