With two weeks off I find myself knee deep in IKEA flat packed furniture and emulsion.
I had intended to get a week away on my trusty old Honda C90 "Lucille" but have had a change of mind and decided with so much to do that I would continue with the building of furniture and start and hopefully complete the living room, and possibly another bedroom.
But at the moment we are still on the building of furniture, or rather I would be but for a flaw in the furniture which requires me to drill a hole.
No problems, but, both my drill battery packs are flat as a pancake.
Currently building wardrobes with soft closing doors and automatic lights. IKEA furniture is well thought out and to be honest relatively easy to put together. Sometimes it would be better if there were two of you to hold things but other than that, not bad.
Certainly things have come along way since my first experience of flat pack back in the 90's. Nothing lined up and the fixings were dodgy to say the least. Making for a rather unsteady and rocky shelving unit which in the end collapsed after only a couple of months!
The last time I did any painting was just before I left Shaston, and I had to get the house back to it's original colours.
This time it is all being painted white, even the radiators will be having a repaint!
Then the whole of the downstairs will be refloored. This will be done once the conservatory is completed.
Still waiting for the cabin to arrive and be erected, this should be done soon. Without this being done we cannot empty the garage, which has a knock on effect all the way through the house.
The conservatory is due to start being done in the middle of August, before they start, some grubbing out of bushes has to be completed. Thankfully the roots are being dug out by the contractors but the bushes themselves have to be cut down.
So still all go.
Haven't had time to look at campers, just not enough hours in the day.
Well best get back to it and check to see if the batteries are charged!
