We have plastered about 75% of the older part of the property and have started plastering the new extension. This week we have plastered the two ensuites, the dressing room and the master bedroom. With this much plastering, the building can get damp very quickly – plastering the walls in wet plaster introduces a lot of water in the building. Although the ground source heat pump is up and running, we have also left a dehumidifer running to accelerate the drying process.
Next week we will make a start on plastering the kitchen. My guess is that it will take most of the week to get the ktichen plastered.
We have started constructing the canopy on the front elevation of the extension. This runs from the master bedroom and across the top of the large square oak window. It is made of marine ply with a section of wooden gutter inserted towards the front edge. This will then be covered in Sarnafil (an alternative to lead) to make it waterproof. Originally, there wasn’t going to be a gutter in this canopy, howcver, since it is outside the master bedroom, we decided that one was needed to stop water dripping off it during the night. The drain pipe will run down the centre of the pillar and then into a land drain.
