Although we haven’t made much physical progress on the house recently, things have been happening behind the scenes. Over the past 2 weeks we obtained quotes from the tradesmen needed to help us out with the more complicated bits of the work, namely a plumber, an NICEIC registered electrician, and a CORGI registered Gas man. Yesterday we had the plumber in who disconnect an old water tank in the loft, and re-connected the bathroom water supply to the mains.
The pipes which fed the old tank and then lead back down to the bathroom were encased in a bulky box out in the hallway (which you can see, post pipework removal, above). So although we hadn’t planned to disconnect the old tank right away, as we were refurbishing the hallway it made sense to do it now and tidy that area up, rather than paint the hallway walls twice.
Looking at the rusty interior of the old water tank – I think it was no bad thing that we sorted that out sooner rather than later!
