We had the guys coming to template for the stone worktops yesterday. Very efficient and pleasant, and we were all interested to see how they do it, as none of us had experience of this process before.
Most of the tiling is now completed - just the 2 porches to be finished today. The quarry tiles in the hall are looking brilliant. Definitely worth the trips to reclamation yards.
Mark the Builder concentrating on the templating!
The worktop with the hob section
Rich surveys the templating
(you can see where the sink will be in the island -
and they are writing down the measurements for the
upstands around the room)
The back porch floor - not finished
The door from the dining room through to
the kitchen - Roger the Carpenter at work
The finished hall floor
One of the problems in the kitchen -
the angled base unit doors are leaving an ugly gap,
ruining the smooth lines that should come with this design
