It’s Sunday and the weather is being a lot kinder today, but instead of the searing heat we’ve had a very windy day.
The men continue where they left off yesterday and put up more of the villaboard. Measuring, cutting, transferring the cut board into the room, putting daubs of adhesive onto the wall, pressing the board on and nailing it in…and so on and so on!
They used the lifter today in the bathroom and with the help of this nifty machine got the villaboard onto the ceiling with little hassle.
Next they worked on the laundry, the challenge with this room has been the brick wall side, which is irregular and putting plasterboard on this would mean a wobbly wall – not good for when you want to tile and hang wall cabinets. Anthony and his Dad had a bit of a miscommunication, butting heads over a few things and being close to the end of a very long and tiring weekend, sometimes these things are to be expected. Eventually though, they worked through it and there was a solution made, which allowed them to move on and get on with it. This wall is currently awaiting to be covered.
I was glad I was able to contribute too as I proposed a solution to a potential issue. We only had 3 and a bit sheets of villaboard left, so thinking it through, I managed to suggest we use 2 sheets to complete the laundry, leaving us the remaining 1.5 sheets for the ensuite. Pat on the back for me as it was a solution that not only solved our quota of sheets, but also meant there would be a single and shorter join on the ceiling – the least amount of joins the better apparently.
Unfortunately the in laws will be heading back home tomorrow as they do have their own lives and home to get on with. It’s always been so good to have them around and helping us on the house – don’t know how we would have done it otherwise. This week, it will be Anthony and I left to our own devices, but we are getting closer to reaching our end of year target for the house.
