Today it was the turn of the plasterer. He is doing both the inside plastering and the outside rendering. The initial coat of the rendering is done (the top coat to be added on a dry day, so no time this week). The initial plastering inside has also been done (at least there had better be a final skim). The builder managed to crack the existing plaster in creating the new doorway, so until there is a dry day my radiator will be off the wall. The central heating is off, but it does all mean that I still can’t move any of the furniture back and can’t get at my books.
