The guys continued with this work over Tuesday and Wednesday, so the whole back of the house has been treated like this, though not to this depth.
Well, there's one more issue, that is worrying, and that's the unplanned costs of this work. Our budget is already extremely stretched, and this could be a serious dent, meaning I have to try to do more of the internal work myself than I'd like, or am able.
The plasterers were also about this past week, chipping out and patching up cracks in the facade plasterwork, getting ready for the next layers.
Today was a holiday, tomorrow a bridge day, so we're not expecting any workers till mid next week. Enough time for me to plan pipework in detail.
