Worlds slowest reno
« on: January 16, 2021, 10:39:02 AM »
A Miners hut on our block which was a rental.
So far have kicked in the ceilings, stripped the house of all plaster, wiring and plumbing [which has been replaced]
Removed all floors, replaced the stumps, bearers, joists then a new yellow tongue floor.
Repaired all windows, made one into a bay window.
Now slowly replacing all weatherboards and front verandah.
This will ultimately be spare bedrooms, apart from the whisky room.
After we finish this have a 180m2 extension, currently with the architect.
I'll update this thread as we move along different stages.

The walls had several thicknesses of render, last reno done ? they battoned some walls and plasterboard, other walls plasterboard straight onto the render.They also installed a false ceiling at 2.4m, the original ceiling at 2.7m we kicked in and renewed.

Her indoors did the whole room.
She used a 4 inch bolster and a hammer, took her 6 weeks.
Then wire brush.
Then pressure washed, applied hydrocloric acid, pressure wasshed again - repeat 4 times.

Stage Two has begun.

The plumber roughed in, and blindings were poured, and finally, walls and trussed delivered.
