So I have spent today laying in front of the wood heater with the cat doing some homework whilst husband renovated. In defence of my laziness, he was doing the wiring, which was a one person job.
But I am happy to say, our room is as close as its going to get for the plasterers. We are currently waiting on the robes to arrive, but then that is it!

Insulation and wiring in
So thats it, now to wait for the plasterers to arrive.
Now, given all of this, you would think we would take some time to sit back, relax and admire our handy work.
Not in this household!
Today we had a discussion about replacing the 100 year old timber floorboards in our lounge and hallway. I love our timber floorboards, and whilst we had toyed with the idea of laying down carpet, with children on the cards, its possibly not the best choice for our dining room. But our current boards are 100 years old, and have 100 year old cracks in them. Not to mention 50 million nails. We worked out the pricing, and its not as bad as I thought it would be (ie it's cheaper than carpet, so that keeps the tightwad husband happy). We stained our origional boards ourselves many moons ago, so it shouldnt be such a task. And the boy thinks he should be able to do it in a weekend. So that will possible be our next project before the carpet goes in. I love it how some things keep making it to the bottom of the list. Its a bit like renovating our kitchen, we keep finding cheaper tasks to do before renovating it, as we know it will be a vortex of disappearing money!
Now I am off to do some more sitting in front of the heater
