Snag List Day 7

The biggest job left on the snag list was done today, and that was the laying of the vinyl flooring.
We had decided to get a professional fitter in to do the job, and for forty quid, we got a twofer.
When we’d chosen the flooring, we were told the fitter would come in the morning but they couldn’t give us a time. This was OK as it meant he would also be bringing the flooring so we didn’t have to worry about storing it somewhere.

The van pulled up outside at 9.40 with two lads on board and as is the norm here, the first thing after good morning is ‘Tea or coffee’.
With a response of coffee white with two twice, I set to with the kettle and they set to checking out the job…….. with Maya’s help of course and her pawtographs were now all over the lining paper we’d put down over the weekend.

The guys said there was no problem laying the vinyl on top of the paper, so they tidied up the edges and began to work.

The job took just over an hour, and they knew what they were doing. The end result is great, because it brings together the original wall tiles, those we’ve just put up and also the grey paint on the walls.

Not much left to do now:
Plinths, boxing in pipes, and putting the cupboard in place.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Well done, it looks amazing

  2. Looks great! Another job off the list! You are neighborly! I’ve never offered a hot drink first think in the morning to workers. Maybe a cold water on a hot day later on but I usually expect they had their caffeine hit on the ride over.

  3. you’re almost there πŸ™‚ looks good

    Must be a relief. It’s looking great

  5. Sometimes you need professionals. We needed them to fit the windows, add the gutters. Fix other windows. Remove a moldy door and replace it with a window. Patch the driveway. We even got help clearing the gutters (no, we do NOT climb up on ladders) and clearing the property before winter. The reality is we can’t do it ourselves and my son works full time, so we hire people, almost all local. And they do a GREAT job. I love that shower cabinet!

    • Hubby is a good all rounder, but won’t touch gas. General DIY we have managed to do most of that ourselves and got good at kitchens (having done 4) and this is our second bathroom revamp. Hubby has put doors, patio doors and windows in, but when it comes to roofing or central heating installation, we call in the pros. He can change a radiator though, and he did put a rad in the boat which was much better than the silly kick heater that did nothing to warm the sitting area. It meant we lost a bunk, but we turned the lounge into an L shape which actually gave us more room when we had visitors aboard.
