This week in renovation land...Mark spent most of the week working on lots of fiddly bits and pieces.
- rendered the cracks in the hallway walls
- turned our bedroom door so it opens against the wall
- replaced a couple of floorboards in our bedroom
and arranged for the tiler & the plumber to come and give us a quote
- Booked Simon (tiler) for the weekend of the 23rd (yes May)
- The plumber is tentatively booked to come Fri 15/5 pending his quote.
I phoned electricians and grano's to try & tee up quotes
- Electrician, said he'd come over on Friday - surprise surprise, he never showed up
- 2 grano contractors: both need plans to do a quote. I posted a set to one & the other said he'd come over Saturday to pick up plans & discuss what we need. Surprise, surprise...(again) the grano bloke didn't turn up. Grrrr contractors.
