Painted, put on the cladding on one wall, finished all the waste pipes, mock fitted and cut all the cabinets (taking a hole saw to 200 quid cabinets wasn't fun).

Tomorrow will finish the cladding, seal the bath in and tile the floor before lunch, then hopefully grout and fit the toilet and sink tomorrow evening.

Need to nip to b&q tomorrow as managed to snap the only 3mm drill bit I had in the house

Finished the walls of the spare bedroom, finally.

Still need to paint the ceiling, radiator, windowsill, fit a new ceiling light and replace the laminate, but it's getting there at last.

Cut up the old water tank and removed from the loft. Then boarded the rest and insulated. I'm hot!

Finished the floor, cut and primed the skirting (not secured yet) and started putting some furniture in at long last. Also gave the grass its first ever cut after sowing it about 3-4 weeks ago.

We're fast outgrowing the house though; as much as I want a break from working on houses and to enjoy this once it is finished, I think we'll look at moving within a year of finishing it as ideally we'd like another bedroom and a second bathroom at least. Enjoying having it come together at long last though!!

That tile on the upstand of new step, the last one on the left needs to be blue, why is it wrong?

Windchimes? really?

I like the tables though, although i would get rid of the painted number 3 on the larger one.

Ripped up the laminate in the 2nd bedroom. Cats pissed on it a while back and ruined it. Fibreboard underneath had to come up also. Awful stuff.

Finally got it all up and cleaned it ready for new underlay. Shit job, especially in a small room with furniture.

I don't own a new van, it's second hand. I don't own a new Octavia either, it's leased. Well spec'd but underpowered for tax purposes (company car).

I will get some photos up when I get chance. 15 hours at work and I've very little sleep over the past couple of days as the little one has been sick.

You knew exactly what I meant you absolute fucking retard - it's new to you.

When someone buys a new car even if its second hand do you say "Oh i see you've got a second hand car"

Along with Nathy the pair of you are the biggest pair of weirdos I have ever come across.
