Kitchen Update: Plastering, Missing Units & Smalt Blue

My last update could have created the property appear like a damp dungeon, but considering that then the ceiling and walls have been boarded and plastered, making it look like a comprehensive area once again. In real truth, the very first time I walked in and saw it in the light of day in excess of Christmas I believed it looked massive!

Consider a sneaky peak at what it looked like right after it was plasterboarded…

and then plastered…

There is one particular corner left to be plastered in the authentic part of the kitchen but we want to rip out our current sink first. Nevertheless, we cannot do this right up until the new sink has been plumbed in. It’s at the moment waiting in the third bedroom to make it is grand physical appearance. It’s all a bit jigsaw-like getting commenced on fitting the units and actually has given me a new identified respect for joiners. It is a tough work.

So like I stated, it was the intention to have our brand new swanky sink fitted in prior to Christmas, but sadly this has been delayed. We breathed huge sighs of relief – prior to the additional delays – as this meant it was time to start off unpacking the kitchen pieces which have been flooding the home because October. We emptied the lounge of all the units, as effectively as the hallway and spare bedrooms, and the very first activity was to verify everything was there. You can see how cramped with boxes our lounge was beginning to get…


Chris, my uncle and our joiner, started sifting through the kitchen strategies, organising them into their potential positions to verify they were sized properly and absolutely nothing was missing.

Sadly some products have been missing and other individuals have been just simply incorrect. You see, when the objects have been delivered, we squished every little thing in wherever we could discover a spot for it to go. We had been supplied a great deal of money off if we ordered in October and we definitely weren’t in a position to say no to a monstrous price reduction. We have been warned in advance that as we have been not checking what was currently being obtained – with an comprehending that it wasn’t yet to be fitted – we may possibly uncover that a joiner will later on recognize some products that need altering, which has turned out to be the case. This is not a dilemma as the goods can be exchanged with a great sum of flexibility. The difficulty is, we’ve been told it is unlikely it can be carried out till the warehouses reopen in January.

Oh well. Soon, Karen, soon…

Yet another slight delay but absolutely nothing a bit of patience can not remedy. I think we’re obtaining very good at this waiting malarkey. Also, it is really interesting to see the units in their potential positions even if they are not fitted in but.

(p.s the kitchen is actually grey but the images search white due to the fact these are just the frames.)


In the meantime, as you can inform from the above, we have had the vast majority of electric sockets as effectively as the ceiling spotlights place in, which seems wonderful. And in the meantime above the Christmas holidays, Joe and I can get the ceiling painted with a basecoat. We’ve picked out the colour we are going to use on the function wall, and to me, it is stunning. Painting that wall is going to be a big minute for us, and it is only all around the corner. Is not it BEAUT? Roll on January!
