Just a little update I meant to post a few weeks back, before our desktop computer finally died. It has been nursed by Mr CH for the past year and was refusing to start without pushing buttons a million times, seems if you can get four or five years from a computer you have done well (or have the patience of a saint). Fortunately we don't store many files on the computer though loading new settings is time consuming. I could have used one of the other laptops but being a techno chicken I thought I would just wait until we got a newbie. It has been an expensive month with the council rates for two properties due, electricity, and phones due, not to mention the printer died two weeks before the computer did and we don't have a credit card. Yep, I kid you not, we actually gave it up to buy the Reno cottage, as a credit card is considered a debt regardless whether the balance owed is zero or not. So we could get another one now (funny banks?) but have found we haven't wanted to.
Anyway back to renovating. Lots of washing of walls has been done and the undercoating of the new dining room has been done (formerly bed 2).
The stud wall between the new lounge and bed 2 is finished and is waiting to be lined by Mr CH.
Bed 2 to lounge.
Half a wall washed.
Lots of little jobs always to do, sanding the new door jamb and wall flush
The water rot from the bathroom on the otherside was bogged with car bog, sorry I don't have a photo, we used Seatons brand it takes 20 minutes to set before you can sand it.
You mix two parts together and mix until it gets thicker, don't breathe the fumes too much and wear a dust mask when you sand. We use a mini vac to suck up the dust.
Just needed to fill the gap above skirting board height as the gap will be patched from under the floor.
We decided to hand roll the dining, I don't know why it just started that way. You don't have to worry when it's only the undercoat.
Always seem to have paint in my hair these days?
Sorry about the gloomy photos, still using the dodgy lens.
Two topcoats and you'll never know.
Natural wood piece between the new bed 1 and dining door jamb will need a little gap filling - funny quirks in hand cut wood.
Well that's all for now, I'm taking it easy at the moment. I have a sore bruised elbow and stiff neck from cleaning our veranda ceiling. So I'm trying to learn this photoshop thingy, this could be addictive!
Have a lovely day.
