Preparation work before laying the concrete floor.

Conservatory guys on their last day.
Dave the brickie providing musical entertainment on a tea break.
Sharing a joke! These guys were just lovely to have around.
Our friend Martin plastering the interior.
Waiting for the plaster to dry.
Dave enjoyed putting his mark on the project, a pale grey finish.
Finally finished. Our neighbour did the joinery and floor and a couple of other guys did the electrics and heating (rad to follow). Here we are celebrating a very special birthday boy on his ninth year round the sun.
The party was held two days before his actual birthday which was on Monday. Would you believe it I took no photos that day, I was just too worn out from all the party prep!
Now that the dining room is off the lounge, our front room is now solely a play room/ learning zone. It makes the end of the day tidy up so much easier and most importantly is no longer a tripping hazard for Dave. A win-win situation for sure!
