« Part 4: Utility Room (13-08-2010) Part 5 of A New Start series Part 6: Utility Room (17-08-2010) »

I tried to have a nice relaxing weekend, but on Saturday I helped my Son-in-Law with a little work, the demolition of a garage – I was totally “Kaput” by the the end of the day, Sunday was good – washing clothes, moving the iMac and doing some needed administration work.

So this morning I felt full of vigor and strength – that soon disappeared after re-starting the excavation work – well I did make some progress, as shown in the photograph. I need more protein – maybe a nice big steak, but living on my own at the moment, no time for shopping or cooking – just opening a can or packet, if I have the strength at the end of the day!


Tomorrow I will definitely finish the excavation, then I have to workout where the hot, cold & waste water lines will go, also the type heating to be used. Once those lines have there “first fit”, I can then start the process to seal the floor.

The specialist will arrive on the 7th September to waterproof the Utility room and Kitchen – so things have to keep on moving in order to meet that deadline.

I have now got to get some materials in, which is easier said than done, as I still do not speak any Dutch/Flemish.

By the way, you can see the B&D SDS in the foreground – this is a definite “must have” tool for this type of work, although they say it only for light chipping, it works real good on thick concrete.

The quality utility rooms take at the qualities of their owners. They’re a place to cling coats, shop muddy boots and house pet baskets for out of doors types. They’re a secondary kitchen with storage for cumbersome pots and pans, a sink, and extra fridge-freezer capability for big households. And for lots of us, they’re where bulky laundry appliances live, freeing up space in the kitchen and keeping noise out of the main house. Do my assignment for me UK
