Interior Construction Day 4

Lot’s more progress today. The dry walls upstairs have been started, and we have a bathroom! For the other rooms, only the metal frame has been installed. Maybe by tomorrow all of the plasterboard will be installed.

The plumber has also been busy again, and the electrician as even more cables have been installed.

Here are some pictures from today:

The electric, satellite TV and network cables all converge in one corner of the cellar. Hopefully the electrician remembers which one is which…

Our Heat Pump is out of its packing and installation has started…

The metal frame for the guest bedroom wall…It looks odd with the strange angles, but it is right! This is the 45 degree door into the bedroom, with the entrance to the walk-in wardrobe at 90 degrees to that…
Guest bedroom and office…

Ducts for the cables for Satelitte TV and Solar Panels coming down from the roof, on their way to the cellar…

The bathroom!

Frame for the box behind the bathroom sink. On the floor the water pipes coming up from the cellar…

Lots of pipes and cables running everywhere…

The ground floor heating manifold…

We are expecting that work will continue until Saturday lunch time. by then the dry walls, electrical and plumbing installation should be complete.

The only work scheduled for next week is the installation of the underfloor heating pipes and the floor screed. This will bring the level of the floor up by 18cm downstairs and 14cm upstairs (less in the cellar as there is no under floor heating there).

Late this evening we went back to the house, as the positions that the electrician has marked for the sockets in the bathroom (allowed in Germany) are not where we want them. We have therefore marked them in different places, so hopefully that works out OK.

We think the house is now well insulated, as the single fan heater that has been running since Monday on the ground floor, now has the inside temperature higher than we would normally have it!
