    Materials have gone up but thankfully the joiners are the same price. I had budgeted for the bedroom to first fix, but not including the bathroom fitting/furniture/tiling, and before we started on my sons room too. No work yesterday but today the whole front has studded out

    2 weeks in…. Son’s room stripped, cornice removed, wardrobe removed, and sound board to party wall. Annoyingly despite my calculations I’m one board short. It was tight but these are expensive so didn’t want to over order, now left with the opposite problem of trying to get a single board...

    The next project, we’ve been dreading, is the master bedroom. Its a big room, 7.5m x 4.5m, which was basically decorated when we moved in but otherwise left untouched. Plan is to take it back to brick on the external and party walls and insulate and sound proof. New ceilings, and floor...

    Time for a long over due update. Long finished the basement flooring… … only for my 4 year old to flood it from the bathroom, slight setback (a lot of extra work) but fixed it back to almost as before. This is before revarnishing.

    Insulating between floors?

    I will echo that's its absolutely worth it, both for sound and insulation I like to keep all my rooms a different temperatures and its usually the lowest room I want the warmest, the bedroom cooler, and the loft is set to 15 degrees if not it use. I put 200mm rock wool under my suspended...
