Installing the services

services-to-first-floor.jpg We are at that stage of the house where to the untrained eye nothing seems to be happening, but the house is being stuffed with wires, pipes and things to make the house “work”. Here is the foul waste pipe coming down from the upstairs bathroom, various electrical cables and mains feeds to the bathroom sinks etc. The plumbing is further complicated by the “grey water” system for the toilet flushing which will come from a header tank that the system’s pump will fill up. Once all these services are in place we can start fitting the ceilings and wall finishes. This will be a mixture of log siding on some of the internal stud walls, plasterboard on others, generally plasterboard on the ceilings but some tongue and groove in a few places too.
