Interior Construction Day 2

Electrical Installation

Today was day two of the electrical installation work. I popped in on the way to work this morning to try and see the electrician but he was not there.

One of the guys that was working on the roof insulation was kindly made a note of the correct height and promised to tell the electrician when he arrived. Sure enough, when we visited on the way home the holes for the sockets had been moved down 30cm or so, and the original holes and channel had been filled in.

Whereas yesterday there were just holes in the wall, today most of the ground floor cabling has been done, and there are now cables coming up out of the cellar, where the ‘fuse box' will be and running all over the floor to their final locations for the light switches, sockets and for the electric shutters.

The plastic ducts for the network and satellite TV cabling are already installed, but the cables are not there yet.

Outside the house, we now have cables poking out for our three outside sockets, and six outside lights.

Wall / Roof Insulation

There's been lots of progress upstairs too. The walls and roof insulation is now fully installed and has been covered in polyethene. The framework for the drywalls has been started on the side walls.

With the heater downstairs running and outside temperatures above freezing for the first time in a couple of weeks, it felt noticeably warm inside (and noticeably cold when we went back outside!)
