After our little glitch, the floor has been successfully poured and it's set. The joiners and the plumber were here last week, so we're back to where we were two weeks ago. Well, that's not strictly true - the builders have been here and have put in the roof vents, tidied up any loose slates and have sarted work on the guttering and downpipes.

Next week, we should have the plumber and the electrician, then the plasterboarding will start on the 13th September.

"Fired Earth", from whom we are getting the tiles for the kitchen and hall, want us to check the measurements - they think we need more tiles than are ordered. The cynic in me says this has something to do with the fact that we're not using their installation service. If you do, they're on sale or return; if you use your own tiler, as we are, you can't return any surplus. I may be doing them a disservice but we'll measure carefully tomorrow.
