    Had been down near Glasgow visiting my folks and heading round the salvage yards for this stuff so hadn’t seen the house since the delivery. It’s absolutely jammed full and there’s some stuff in one of the byres where we’re renting and some in the joiner’s shed too..

    Really enjoy that zebra paint! Was that just a diy job with black white and grey paint and some brushes?? Looks brilliant!

    Oh definitely, can’t wait to be that cosy, the place we’re renting isn’t bad but will be nowhere near as warm as our place when done.

    Delivery of all the internal bits arrived today so that’s the rest of the insulation, internal walls, doors, plasterboard, skirting and all the other bits and pieces.

    Also picked up this amazing live edge bit of oak! Chopped it down and squared the edges that would be sitting against the wall and got it sanded for treating at some point. This is going to be for the bathroom sink and it was a long enough slab that there was enough for a shelf underneath as well. I reckon we’ll go with a proper sink rather than a basin though..

    Also picked up this massive old sink for use in the workshop, perfect size for if I get back into screen printing for rinsing screens and things.

    Arwen tried its best, but I think we were north of the worst of things. Still, cracking test for a half built house I reckon!
    And the polytunnel didn’t become an expensive kite so feeling rather lucky on both accounts.
    Nihil stayed in and got herself rather cosy..

    @ChainBreaker Haha yeah I know right, reckon I would be way more productive without it though.. I hope that in time I’ll just gradually tiptoe backwards away from it all..

    Just now we’ve got one of those 4g mifi router things, not perfect if both of us are working from home and on teams chats but really not bad at all.

    Yeah uh huh, they’re on a generator for now although the joiner loves his tools so has like 15 Makita batteries between them all. Generator seems to only be for the large saw and lighting right now.

    I still haven’t watched that so thank you for sharing, think that’ll be my Saturday night plans sorted.

    @Technics100 internally it’s 240mm wool, 2 inch rigid insulation overboarded then service cavity and plasterboard. I believe it’s the same in the roof spaces.

    Externally it’s just batten and board with larch cladding on the rear, knauf aquapanel exterior cement board with a silicone render sides and front and the porch is just going to be local stone.

    Then I believe it’s 400mm wool in attic spaces and not entirely sure what’s sitting high on the gable ends.. not sure if it’ll be a whole lot given the insulation to the vaulted area.

    Don’t think I’ve taken a picture since our back door went in either, makes the central area feel even brighter and there’s 3 velux to go in yet.

    That’s the larch cladding sitting inside, joiner was chuffed when he saw it and said it was really nice wood which made me smile.

    Also, I was late for an appointment today as I couldn’t get by the end of the road, this was my excuse, I love this place!
