Week 22. Still no rain.

The final week before Easter saw the chape (float concrete floor) being laid downstairs. This is a good time for it, as it enables the Easter holidays to be put to good use while it starts to dry. No work can be done downstairs in the rooms where it has been laid while it dries, at least until next week for first footfall and probably it will be at least 3 weeks before tiles can be laid on it.

The electrician / plumber has also been around doing more second fix work, mainly upstairs.

We have also started decorating upstairs.

The decorating upstairs has been the main feature this week, and the electrician / plumber has also been around doing more second fix work, mainly electrics.

More of the same, as last week, with the addition of a visit by the Menuisier to fit shutters to the outside doors.
