I applied a second coat of plaster on the bathroom wall earlier this week, just needs a final coat. Today I finished the stud walling for the bathroom and set the drain in place for the shower. The shower is now ready to assemble and plumb in. I won't be able to do this for at least 10 days though, as I'm off to the UK for a film shoot in London and then I have a wedding next Saturday, so I'll crack on with the shower and bathroom the week after next when I get back.

Not a lot to add, I've been working nights in a factory most of last week, so not much done on the house. Painted the ceiling upstairs yesterday and today, just an undercoat but there's a big difference already. Still got small bits of filling to do around the windows and some of the beams. When I get the chance I will get some more plaster and finish the end wall too.

Finished boarding the other window Wednesday. I've had more van troubles, the vacuum pump for the brakes went, so have had to fix that before getting on with the house, found a part at a scrapies though so it's done now.
The taps I purchased from Le Bon Coin (a sort of french ebay) arrived on Wednesday and the sink arrived today, I'm very pleased with both. I just need a wash stand of some sort to put them in.
