Update XI – week 9

alexhunt Bright Green News, New Project, News

So it’s been a few days since I had time to update this project on the blog… But im using the opportunity of the snow today (amazing how little snow can bring a country to its knees!) to catch up with this.

So, since I last wrote this up we have moved on in leaps and bounds and things aren’t track to finish the main house in week 12 just before Easter as planned (I hope that comment doesn’t come back to bite me).

We have the air tightness sorted, the ceilings plastered on the first floor, the bathroom and ensuite units are in – despite terrible customer service from online plumbing suppliers, promising 3 days delivery date and then not actually delivering for 14 days!!! I have to say I’d love to name and shame them, but I don’t think it’s professional – what I will say is that we won’t be using online suppliers again in a hurry…

So, we also have the plastering being completed this week (weather permitting of course!).. Which excitingly means we can also begin the decorations.. Then we really are moving on to the finishes. For instance the mantle piece is being fitted…

So all in all things are once again moving along at a pace…

In between all of this we went to Ecobuild and saw lots of friends, colleagues and potential new suppliers… The exhibition really has exploded in size in the last few years from table top displays to whole houses being constructed just for the three day show…

Finally, we are looking at a few exciting projects tHat might begin in the summer once our clients have moved in and taken full possession of this project…

Also Alex showed the guys Francesca and Neil from the Eco Open House event around the site yesterday as we will be opening this house up for visits in June, so if you would like to come and see us then please do
