No pictures today. Stephen was working on the floor, and Stan and Mikey completed some work in the garden in preparation for the decking. David and Kevin made a number of appearances. The soffit man was here too, to do some work on the pipe from the gutter. I'm not sure if he finished it, though. Mark, the granite man, was over again verifying a measurement. And Mark the painter was over too, assessing the work.
Our initial painter, Richard, after stringing us along for 3 weeks, rang us today to say he had done his back in and wouldn't be able to do the job. So we rang Mark Delaney, who painted our exterior walls a few years ago, and did a great job. We had wanted to use him in the first place, but couldn't get through to him at the time we were getting quotes in. He's extremely busy right now, but will squeeze us in, to do the rooms downstairs in the next few weeks. The outside, hall, stairs and upstairs will have to wait for a couple of months until he's free.
