#14 Finished at Last

Well it took a little longer than I had estimated, due to a missing part for my bi-fold doors which took about five weeks to get, a bit ridiculous considering we can get parts from anywhere in the world in a matter of days delivered, but eventually the parts arrived and job has been completed. So the painter has returned to finish his work and the chippy has also returned to do a few finishing touches, the electrical is now completed and I have now ordered the spot lights, waited for a Christmas special discount that saw a @25% off...

 Now getting ready for the floor coverings, so we had to fill in all of the divots in the floor from where the walls etc were pulled out, the nails and screws when removed left lots of holes that needed to be fixed, otherwise when visitors walked around those with high heels would trip, so all fixed now looks good.  Leigh has finished the grouting in the toilet and attached all of the accessories. The guys from Carpet Court turned up and surveyed the premises, then in no time flat they had rolled out the carpet and had it installed,...
