Plastered the end wall yesterday, needs a fine top coat to finish it. Today I erected part of the bathroom stud wall and the bathroom door.

Hitchocks Phsyco famously showed a flushing toilet for the first time in movie history. Now for the first time ever at La Borie!!!

Did some plumbing yesterday. Actually turned the water on and had it flow through the bathroom and out a hole in the wall I'd made for the drains. I ran out of pipe connectors though and the shops don't open here on week ends so couldn't finish, it'll have to wait till Monday.

So today I finished boarding the windows, and straightened the flue pipe outside

Got my new "old" door for the front of the house today.  Very very pleased with it, exactly what I was after, it came with a free Jesters outfit!
It was given to me by some good and generous friends of my folks.
I just have to build the hole to put it in. Anyone know how to build a hole?

Filled the plaster board joints yesterday. Today I've been making the raised floor for the bathroom. Won't screw it down until the plumbings done, drains etc. Stud walls ill be next.

Went a bit mad with the recessed lights and put them in the wall up the stairs, they look ok though I think, and you don't have to turn them on do you? Maybe need a smaller wattage bulb.

My Father and I started plaster boarding the ceiling on Saturday, it's now Sunday evening and we've very nearly finished, just the little end corner left to do tomorrow morning. Then a few patches and a few holes to fill and the seams to tape up and plaster, and it's done. The recessed ceiling lights are all in and looking good. Bathroom floor and stud wall will be next I think.
