New Kitchen - Day 160

At last, the repairs and renovations are nearing completion/

Today, Charlie from Wymondley Flooring came to level the study, utility, and larder floors, and lay a  silicone screed.

We moved everything from the study, except the desk. which wouldn't fit through the door or utility room.

Earlier last week, our builders made good inroads into the painting and tiling of all rooms.

Wall colour = primrose white

The study walls were repainted, the radiator re-hung,  and the entrance and door painted in colours that match those used in the kitchen and utility,

Wall colour = primrose white

The re-plastered larder wall was painted, as were the door and surrounds (Lamproom Grey).

Wall colour = primrose white

The utility walls that were damaged, were also re-painting. Skirting boards and door surrounds are in the lovely Lamp Room grey, from Farrow and Ball.

The shower room tiles were finished on Sunday evening.

The floor tiles look wonderful, especially the 'coriander' border around the shower tray

and at the bottom of the walls.

Charlie (Wymondley Flooring) returns tomorrow to lay the vinyl in the study, utility, and larder. Fingers crossed he can match up the kitchen and utility without the need for a joining bar.

Out builder then re-appears on Wednesday to finish the tile grouting, re-install the sanitary ware, and plumb in the new power shower.

Then there will be a lull in the proceedings while MWNN and I recover. The opportunity to sort the study is too great to miss, before we embark on the next big house project - replacing the flooring in the sitting room/dining room/hall/stairs/landing.
