I said yesterday that we were in a bit of a painting frenzy before my parents arrive (actually, it's unfair to blame them, really it's because we can open windows and doors and air the place). The attic undercoat is drying nicely, and shows up the beams to good effect.
Also yesterday, Patrick arrived to do the joints in our office. He returns this morning to do the second stage - patching the little bits he missed yesterday. After that I will be sanding it and painting the walls prior to laying a tile floor.
In the post I linked to above I wrote "We bought 30 litres of undercoat yesterday evening, so we shouldn't run out!" Needless to say, at some time this week we will be returning to Bricodepot to buy another 30 litres.
