We've had a few lazy days. He's got another job somewhere nearby where most of his people are needed, and it really is very hot. The person who was supposed to tile the bathroom today called in sick. Still, progress has been made. The french doors downstairs are coming along:
The roof has been sealed:
The washstand now has the requisite holes in it, the new bathroom walls have been plastered, and the downstairs loo has a pair of doors made from something called smartboard to conceal the pump under the stairs. I've bought some tiles for the downstairs loo--buttercup yellow, cheapest in the shop--a water heater and a tap for the bathroom. All in all these have been a busy few days.
