So this is the week I was hoping to get ALL the painting done, carpets laid upstairs and some of the furniture moved in. Unfortunately that isn’t the case. Things are taking a lot longer than we expected. The painting isn’t finished and the carpet is no where near ready to be laid. Unfortunately this means that we are not going to be in for Archie’s birthday next week.
Even though this week feels like we haven’t got a lot done, we have. All the plastering is finished in the house now so we have been able to get some first coats of undercoat on a few of the walls in our bedroom. The skirting boards and coving all over the house have now been undercoated and glossed as have all the doors.
We have had a few issues with Archie’s room this week. I was hoping that come this weekend we would have it completely finished. Unfortunately the lining paper hasn’t taken to the wall and has bubbled in places and has cracked. I’m not sure if this is because it has been applied wrong or what but we’re desperately trying to fix it without having to re do the whole room.
I’m hoping by the end of next week we will have upstairs nearly finished and be starting downstairs.
