Weeks 23 and 24 - Scaffolding down and starting to board out

Progress over the last couple of weeks has been a bit slow due to the jobs being fairly bitty. Kai took the scaffolding down himself as the scaffolders aren't in any rush to come and collect it! We need the space for a skip to be delivered this week, and so that the delivery truck could get in to drop off all the plasterboard and dot-dab adhesive for the stud walls. The scaffolding is currently all stacked in a massive pile on the ground. The house looks great without the scaffolding hiding it, we're really happy with the way it looks.


The plasterboard sheets are 2.4m x 1.2m - pretty heavy and unwealdy so we used props to hold them in position while fixing them to the ceiling.

We boarded out one side of the stud walls, and packed the cavity with acoustic blanket which is a building regulations requirement to reduce noise coming through the walls between habitable rooms.

Kai fitted the waste pipes for the bathrooms in position under the floor, and laid the gas pipe ready for the plumber to connect up.
