Another midweek spurt today as the plumbers and electricians were all back.
The electricians have now fitted nearly all of the plastic covers on the power sockets, network and TV sockets. Here are the ones that will be hidden behind the TV in the lounge (so it doesn’t really matter that they are not in a straight line!)
The plumbers meanwhile have installed the toilets, sinks, taps and shower, connected up the ventilation system for the heating so that is now running in heat pump mode (rather than in immersion heater mode).
The front cover has now been put on the heat pump for the first time and looks much neater.
They even fitted the outside tap (this one is connected to the main water supply, the water from the rainwater tank comes out somewhere else!
The plumbers are more or less finished, other than that the shower tap they have installed is not the right one). Hopefully they will come back and change it soon.
The electricians have still got to fit a few more socket covers, complete the satellite TV cabling and install the cables that run outside.
In this picture, the main electricity supply (left), water (bottom) and fibre-optic telephone cables (right) can be seen. The empty holes at the top are for the outside cables (for the shed and the water pump in the rainwater tank)
Interior doors should be coming in the next couple of days…
