Just a few progress photos of the inside and how its been moving along since the builders left after completing their work:
First job was the warm roof, literally just to get some of the 100mm boards used up as i had no where else to put them
I was also trying to get as much of the dusty bits out of the way before opening this room up to the rest of the bungalow, so removed the outer bricks from under the bathroom window (the blocks will be done later down the line, as the new bathroom needs creating first so i'm not without showering and toilet facilities).
Cleaned up under the floor and removed the old kitchen window, door and brickwork.
2 new windows went in, triple glazed, with just the bow window to swap out for a standard casement window later down the line.
Next task was to get a firm floor to work off, so I set about getting all necessary pipes in, and also got the electrician in to sort the sockets out, and finally another load of insulation, trying my best to use up all my bits rather than skipping them
A further 50mm to the roof and 20mm under it:
Followed by airtight primer and tape round all of the edges
Started working on the box section at the top of the roof which will house the ventilation pipes and cover up any thermal bridges from the timber wall header
At this point the building inspector came, and asked me what on earth the pipes were for?! Told him they were for the mechanical ventilation and he looked nonethewiser, but otherwise was happy for me to carry on
Another satisfying job using up all my odds and ends of plasterboard this time! Before the front of the box goes on, i need to cut out the 125mm holes for the vent pipe to come through, and install the plenum at each end.
Also found a use for the spare render beads i had from doing the dining room (part 1), trimmed them down with the planer to 11mm, which will give me a perfect level base to work from when i put the bonding coat on.
Fingers crossed the next time i post, it'll be more or less done, minus the bathroom end.
