The first of the doorframes is installed too. My daughter is very pleased that her room is getting ready first.
The family bathroom now has its own bath! Paul and Joss were busy installing that today. The rest of the sanitaryware is going to wait until the decorating has been finished above the tiles.
Brian is back; helping to touch up the paint job (that we started) in the sitting room. It looks much better now, thanks Brian!
Meanwhile, the whole house mechanical heat recovery ventilation second fix has been going on. Here the plastic pipe is prepared to take its vent.
Ebi lends a hand, ensuring that the whole to the outside of the house for the exhaust air duct is just the right size, keeping the house as airtight as possible. The duct for the exhaust air is then pushed out the gap and everything is sealed in sticky tape.
Here the fresh air duct is being istalled. Apparently the lagging on the pipe is very sensitive and doesn't like to be squashed to fit. It was a difficult job to squeeze the pipe through but the guys managed it without even a bad word!
When the system was installed, the vents were then checked to ensure the optimum airflow was being achieved. That is what the large cone is for! The system is now ready for operation, so the house should always be fresh and the heat maintained within the house envelope. It has a summer bypass so we won't overheat in the summer and filters to extract the pollen; fantastic for the likes of us with allergies!
