Man cave: Day 12
The electrical work went to plan, but the plastering did not!
Several small issues: the roll of "NASA stuff" (the tin foil and bubble wrap stuff) is 15m² and the room is 25m² so someone should have worked out he would need two rolls, then when he went to get another they were out of stock now, so had to go somewhere else; nobody seems to have stock of a loft hatch and ladder; almost exactly enough plasterboard was ordered (again, this is something one can work out in advance!), but several bits were damaged and unusable, so more delay; the screw driver gun failing, and the second one (more delay to get it) was jamming.
However, at the end of the day, we have plaster board. The plan for the morning is skim of plaster and fitting the floor as well as fitting the loft hatch. This means some more painting on Friday and the internal door being fitted and maybe even starting on the work tops - yay! The lights can be fitted Friday (again) and part-P testing done (yes, USB charger sockets are a pain). We'll see how it goes.
