The bedroom renovation is well and truly underway. Last night we cleaned out the entire room and moved our bed into the lounge room.
Then MONT the wrecker moved in this morning...he says it has to be done and Melbourne Cup Day was as good a day as any.
Charming ceiling huh?
As you can see, the floor under the old built-ins doesn't reach the wall...whoever built this house back in 1951, decided to go for the easy option and put in a false floor instead of extending the floorboards to the end of the room. Crazy really, as they used leftover floorboards to make the false floor anyway.
It means we'll have to remove some of the existing boards without damaging them and then stagger some new ones in, then get the whole room sanded and polished, yet again. Might be time to call in the professionals I think.
So...it's all systems GO! We have an opportunity to get a really good plasterer here to finish off the room, but he's limited for time, so our window of opportunity is just three weeks....we'd better get cracking!
