Plastered


Ivy has been taking refuge from the building work in my old sewing basket, once I'd padded the bottom with a bit of old quilt she now has to be surgically removed from it! In the garden room the insulation and plasterboard has gone up and now there is a smooth salmon pink layer of plaster drying on the walls. The shower tray has been fitted in the bathroom and the subfloor and pipework has also been fitted.


Every time I see the windows and the cast iron monkey tail catches, I feel really pleased that we decided on this style of windows. They add so much character, UPVC just wouldn't look the same! I'm really pleased with the depth of the window sills, perfect for little vases of posies, a small lamp or a line of sea green vintage bottles.


We still have a lot of finishing off inside, and the plan is also to cover the exterior with weatherboarding. We thought about just painting the rendering but decided that this finish would look too crisp and new.
We'll be painting the outside, the window frames and weatherboarding will be Dulux colour matched to Farrow & Ball's Pointing.

  2. So this is a garden room like a sun porch on the side of the house. ( For those of us not familiar ) It looks like it will all be so lovely. Will it be heated?

  6. One of life's simple pleasures seeing a contented cat sleeping somewhere cosy! Love the fabric in the basket too. Those monkey tail catches are fabulous. It will be lovely to look out at your garden. You are on the home straight now! Looking forward to seeing the final reveal but probably not as much as you are! Kind regards.

Lovely to see the latest photo's,but still not sure wether it's attatched to your house or if it's at the bottom of the garden,in which case why would you need a bathroom?So many questions,sorry! It's getting more exciting ,like the other ladies I'm looking forward to the next stage! kind regards Pam.

  8. Oh I do not envy you. We just had our basement flood. Had to redo both bedrooms down there. I hate having everything in boxes. Good news is that its all done now and I have a new bedroom down there
