Today we have made a start on stripping the wallpaper in the property. Fortunately, we haven’t had to to use a wallpaper stripper yet – while these are good – I do find that the heat and moisture they emit can sometimes make the plaster underneath crumble meaning you end up having to skim the walls after – which would not be good for our budget or timelines!
We’re on a tight budget of £8k to complete this renovation so we are doing a lot of the stripping out and manual labour ourselves to keep costs down. I’ve just had the flooring quote back which was £2.2k (my striped staircase is costing a bomb!) so I am now having to organise more quotes and hopefully I can find a supplier who can meet with my expected flooring spend of £1.5k.
Here is progress so far:
Until next time….
