Before we lay down the carpet upstairs, we want to have new lights installed in the dining room. Hence the need to strip the ceiling and walls downstairs.
Paul & Marian came over to help over the weekend. The current wallpaper is about five layers deep, and we were working away until late in the evening to just get the ceiling done.

Spent the whole day putting the fireplace that arrived this morning into the wall in the spare room.
Hired a medium electric breaker from a nearby tool store and broke open the chimney and fitted it in.
Had some issues re-fitting the skirting boards but all ok now with some cement :-)

We sanded the walls over the weekend and have now started beading the skirting boards and coving, before we start lining the walls in the spare room.
There is a lot still to be done before friends arrive from Australia for a visit in October.
