Another busy loft and DIY day

It’s been a long day but I’ve managed to get a fair amount of work done today. I’ve now managed to insulate between the new joists and get half of the loft boards screwed down on top. Just need to lay some lighting cable and install some pipe for the radiator which will be installed once the stud partition wall has been built. Perhaps I’ll get a chance to do this at the weekend but we’ll have to see how […]

Now that those are installed, we can then think about getting the new floor joists in so I can then continue finishing the room which will be turned into my office / spare room. We’re going to eventually get stairs put in but for the time being I’m going to apply for building regs […]
