Fitted the suspended loo today, not plumbed in yet but it's in place. My father has completed all the upstairs wiring, so will be plaster boarding the whole upstairs over the weekend. It'll feel like I'm getting somewhere then hopefully.

Built the end wall up to meet where the plaster board will be.

Heated some soup (pumpkin!) on the log burner today for lunch. I've had some little visitors to the house in the night, little buggers have been chewing my beams, rats I think, they must like the linseed oil.
With the snow and I've had a few days work so not had a great deal of time at the house, but I've been chasing out the walls for the electrics, the lighting and the sockets. Also putting some recessed lights in the stair wall too. Getting ready for this week end when the plasterboard will be going up, finally!

Rats have been nibbling at the beams, little buggers!

Lights inserted in the stair wall.

Managed to get to the house yesterday, in between the snow to do a little bit of work, but it snowed again today and can't get there again. It's expected to last all week so won't get much done.

It's also too cold for the plaster to dry, I've been experimenting with lime plaster mixes on the walls but it won't dry in these temperatures. It does look beautiful there though! Looking forward to the snow next year when I'm moved in, with a stew heating on the little log burner.
