the flooring is installed, and the ceiling and walls are sheathed in plasterboard so the place is really almost ready for primetime. two more weeks and the work will be complete. we are looking forward to all of the detailed work to be completed, but more than that really want to see how the sliding doors are going to come out. They are the really sexy bit for this wee project.
the new living room space will be entered through a set of doors that slide into a pocket when not in use. The front part of the pocket isn’t built yet in the image below, so it looks kind of odd to us. The top rail for the doors is also supposed to be embedded in the ceiling, so there should only be a thin line visible and not the thick hardware in the image below. its’s a small thing though and the rest of the work is coming along quite nicely in spite of a few surprises here and there.
