What a full on day it has been today! In 33 degree heat Anthony, his Dad and I worked on putting in the villaboard sheets in the wet areas of the house – ensuite, bathroom and laundry.
Generally there really wasn’t too many issues in putting the sheets up. There were some smaller challenges like getting pipes and powerpoints through the villaboard, but the men measured things up well and were able to get these pieces through. My job was to clean up, help with the heavy lifting and apply the adhesive to all the studs. In one day we managed to get all the walls in except for 3 walls in the laundry. Tomorrow we will continue and then add in the ceiling sheets using the lifter.
We only had 1 accidental snap and crack of the board today, but have been able to retrieve the sheet and use it in another room. Villaboard sheets are about $50-$60 each, coming in 4.2m lengths, so they were very careful in cutting them. In the end we actually ordered more than we should have and have an extra 2 sheets. They will decide where else in the house we can install these.
Plastering will continue through the week during the evenings. Once the wet areas are done we can organise the waterproofer to come in.
