Went and bought a new 40mm sds chisel this morning and then baptised it with fire :)
The old tiles where on a sheet and after taking several off there was the cardboard frame a few mm thick still left permanently attached to the wall, hammer and chisel just wasn't the story and as we are having it replastered anyway I brought the Big Lad out :) tiles where literally flying.
Cupboards and units are in excellent shape and Danielle has started priming then. Replastered will be the next move then new sink and worktops, Cupboards finished and a new floor down, tiles for the floor are picked and then the walls will be all tiled halfway up.


You think playing with cars is expensive lmfao
 
lol...you just had to find work for the tool :D
houses are a whole different level of expense and like our car projects, they are never finished :)

Once the kitchen is done it just leaves the Daughters room to do and the stairs to carpet, carpet will be the last thing done as the bathroom is getting extended and don't want it ruined with the builder up n down the stairs
Hopefully he's starting it soon

Plan was to play boost with the Caldina today but the rains on and off all day so......

Decided to go tile shopping for the kitchen, floor and wall tiles bought :) got a bag of plaster too and gave the walls the 1st layer then will need another for the final skim. It's getting tiled over anyway but the secret to perfectly flat smooth tiles is preparing the walls. Get the walls nice and true and smooth and the tiles will look well compared to trying to fill uneven surfaces will adhesive as you go, learnt that lesson 19 years ago and then some lol

Tomorrow's plan, bath out, wall kicked and cut out, ceiling trailed down also just for fun. Oh and that sidewall too give us another 8 inch length.
Went bought new shitter and sink then when the walls are done see what size bath we can get away with :)

New Bath and Toilet in temporary, just back from the Bathshack after ordering all the wall and ceiling panels. Decided to do it with the pvc panels this time as they are real handy worked with after doing the ceiling in the old house. Just the floor tiles to collect then wait for the panels to arrive :)
