The doctor believes I have a slipped disk again, and so I am currently unable to work and so no progress had been made with the loft conversion.
As I spend most of my time either laying on the bed or sitting in a chair, I have nothing new to report at this time unfortunately!!
The outside temperature during the last couple of days has been around -35 c.
Having now recovered from my cold, I have today hurt my back so progress with the conversion is almost non-existent.
Yesterday I started wiring in lights and sockets and the family helped to put up more panel on the walls
I have also put panels around the flue
Some of the skirting boards are in place now and the trim around the windows
There is still much work to do at the other end of the room though!!
Not as much done on the loft conversion as I had anticipated, as I have had “man flu” for several days now!!
I have built a wooden frame around the flue that comes up through the new bedroom
I have also laid the floor in the new bedroom
There is still an awful lot of work to do, so we will see how much more has been done next week.
Last week I spent a day at Solberget Wilderness Village teaching their guests to build a quinzee ( I describe how to build one here; https://naturallore.wordpress.com/2008/02/05/making-a-snow-shelter-or-quinzee/
The heap of snow was left to freeze for 2 hours
Then the quinzee was hollowed out
Once it was hollowed out, there was sufficient room inside to all the children.
Work on the loft conversion also continues…
The ceiling is up and all the electric cables to lights and plug sockets are in place, plus the wall dividing the bedroom and play room is now up
the built-in cupboards are also being constructed
I start work again on Monday, so progress will be much slower after that.
