The flue that needs boxing in;
It comes on with the bathroom light and is noisy in the room at night. So it needs to be boxed in.
The frame to attach everything is mounted on the ceiling. I had to add crosspieces as the joist is wonky behind the plasterboard and I needed a strong fixing to the top.
For the flue though, the fixing is not going to be bearing much weight so I could use skyhooks:
The boxing in will be stuffed with the cheapskates soundproofing - loft insulation:
Blocks in place to hold the bottom frame in. This is important as there's no right angle nor a straight wall to be found in this crooked house of mine.
I spent about 70 quid on fixings at B&Q. Ouch.
So I can't afford a nice paint bucket to clean brushes in, just a cut down milk carton. It does have a ridge in the middle, which is good for getting the paint off.
Mmm sanding. I fucking hate it. With this brand of paper though, I bizarrely think of the Canuckistanis I've met. 256, misslake, ni and Druisan branded P180!
The stairs needed patching so the edging covers the gap.
Sanding over, the stairs are primed.
Next: shoe castille carcase to be built this weekend, probably a lot of painting.
