house – day 15 – garage and more stripping

A busy day today, Fiona stripping more wallpaper, Marc the plasterer repairing the ceilings and me in the garage (from now on to be known as the workshop) building a stud wall over the old garage entrance. We got quite a lot done.

I also lifted some of the kitchen floorboards to see what’s underneath and test-drilled the concrete floor at the back to see how thick it is (about 250mm). I think we’ll have to remove part of it to get the kitchen floor level. If we raise the kitchen floor at the front, the window sill will be below sink level.
