We were keen to get at least the ceiling painted upstairs as our plasterer had kindly left us his scaffold tower to make life easier but even with this it was a slow job. I'm not keen on heights and with a ceiling at over four metres I tried not to look down too much. What was quite interesting was the beam. All had been numbered in Roman numerals except for number four which was Arabic - curious.
|Painted & pointed|
|Beam number 4|
|It's a long way up!|
|Pellet stove from Invicta|
|Trust Mortimer to find the warmest spot|
|Andrew's bespoke carpentry|
|All pipes lead to the plumbing cupboard|
As always most of the work has been done by Andrew, I'm chief decorator and the pointing of the wall was a joint (no pun intended here for the renovator nerds!) effort. At last though my skills are coming to the fore and I can concentrate on finishes and styling. Here's a little taster for you.
