Pic is looking in through the old cloakroom door, larger wall on the left, new door to orangery at the far end. Hole in the floor where the levels will change.
Yeah – we can now see and work when the sun goes down.
Two sets of lights – main panel lighting and spot down lighting. The spots are about half the brightness of the panels, but the camera has made the exposure to mid-grey and I didn’t compensate for it! The spot lights are dimmable to make it cosy.
The other circle in the ceiling is our recessed Kef Ci200 speakers – nice 🙂 There are a pair of them!
Another tree down. Greg is about 10m atop a beech tree.
Loads of 2×1″ = framework!
Retaining walls for terracing the garden. These are at our “fire-pit” area – yet to be completed!
The new rainwater pipe will go down to the soak-away.
Great result by Som and Eric, passed grading to get their green & blue strip belt.
The first bit of landscaping. Bamboo planted and grass growing although a bit patchy.
Underfloor heating pipes and DPM taped to blockwork ready for screed.
Screed was delayed due to a cement silo fault, but after waiting a few months due to Covid-19 another week didn’t make much difference.
This is a cement based screed delivered from a volumetric mixing lorry and pumped onto the floor. The leveling tripods are set level from my required 13mm down from the bi-fold door threshold; enough space for tile (9mm) and adhesive (3mm) and a spare 1mm for playing with!
The cement screed is more expensive but needs virtually no preparation for tiling. There is a little bit of foam that ends up at one end as the screed is leveled abd that can be scraped of with a paint scraper.
The last picture shows how level the floor and bi-folds are. The flowed floor level exactly matches the bi-fold threshold.
