Interior Construction is Completed

Our construction manager told us on Tuesday that despite the team building the dry wall being slightly behind schedule, that the screed would be done by the end of this week.

At the time it was hard to see how, as there was still so much work to be done.

By Tuesday evening, work was well underway with laying the two layers of polystyrene on the concrete floor.

On Wednesday, work started around 7am and finished around 7pm. The result, was that the bath was in place, and the sheeting that sits on top of the polystyrene had been laid.

Now it is Thursday evening, and the underfloor heating pipes are laid. In the first picture (taken from the side, on the stairs), it is possible to see all layers of the construction.

  • Concrete
  • Polystyrene
  • More polystyrene
  • Damp proof sheeting
  • Water pipe

In the cellar, the warm pump has now been installed in its final location (and as far as we know, the connections are all made).

The heating is scheduled to be turned on next week, to start drying out the screed.

Talking of the screed, it should be started tomorrow, and finished by Saturday. The sand has already been delivered…
