Electrics are in

Follow-up to Sunday kitchen hell from Kieran's blog

Today was the electricians turn in the house. They spent 7.5 hours putting in a surprising amount of new wiring. I kept remembering little extras I wanted doing whilst they were here, a new socket here and a new lighting circuit there.

The come in for second fix next week once we're all plastered up and they'll finish off this list:

  • 6 new double sockets in the garage/utility room
  • 2 new lights in the garage/utility room
  • 4 new sockets in the kitchen
  • 1 new oven circuit
  • 1 new socket upstairs
  • New modern consumer unit

Maggie went mental today with all the drilling and chasing out of walls with demolition hammer drills! Poor Maggie.

  1. Never thought building a house involves such crazy effort. Always lived in ready-built ones and dreamt about building my own lil hole. But now that I know what it's really like, I'll probably just stay with the pre-built ones.

  2. Well, it's not building a full house, it's just renovation…but yes, it is hard work :)
