Well, the painter was there doing the first coat of paint. He told us that they call the first coat, the "show coat" as it reveals any blemishes and defects that the plasterers will have to fix later. He was expecting to finish the "show coat" by this afternoon. Then the walls will be sanded and checked before the next coat of paint was applied. Now, this must mean that the end is near! We chose Bristol "White Smoke" in low sheen on all our walls. This should offset our dark floors nicely. The skirting boards, architraves, eaves and doors are all been painted the same colour but in the gloss finish. The ceilings and cornices will be white. Some rooms will have feature walls done after hand over.

Furthermore, the plasterers were there to neaten up all the joints between the cornices.
Also noticed that the gas has been connected. Wow, soon we'll be "cooking with gas!"
