“I don’t think that’s where the bath tub belongs”…

… and other tales from the building site.

Not much to tell you today, but I thought I’d update anyway. These photos were actually taken at the weekend and I didn’t get round to posting them, but there’s no visible difference today anyway so it’s fine.

Last week they put fire protection walls over the pipes in the bathrooms. I know they’re fire protection walls because they were standing outside our flat door the day before and that’s what the label on them said 😉 Then a few days later a shower tray (I assume) and bath tub appeared. The bath isn’t quite where it belongs yet though…

 

(I guess you can’t really tell from the photo, but the bath is literally in front of the door.)
Those black pipes that are just standing around in the picture on the left have gone now, although I’m not sure where…

The kitchen looks the same, so no photo. Although today they’ve removed some of the drawers and the cupboard thing (with bins attached) from under the sink, so it seems like today they’ve been doing things with the wiring, which is less dramatic/visible that other things but also important. Other than that a whole bunch of stuff has appeared in the corridor again… wall panels like the ones that went over the pipes in the kitchen and something that may be for the kitchen floor? I’m not sure. Hopefully that will all be getting installed somewhere tomorrow. We’ll see.

Also, we had a (literal) shit show with the temporary shower/toilet facilities at the weekend. I went down there on Saturday morning to find what I thought was water on the floor. Then I looked down the side of the container and… it was not just water. Jan called the construction manager who first claimed we weren’t supposed to be using the toilet since we have chemical ones (nope, not what we were told!) then blamed the residents for throwing things down there they shouldn’t have. Which makes no sense because it wasn’t blocked but clearly leaking/not attached properly. He then told us there was still one bathroom in the next door building that could be used… the water there was being switched off on Monday (as in today) but it could be used over the weekend. And he would send somebody to clean up the mess. So I got to shower in a real bathroom again over the weekend and this morning. I’ll be back using the temporary shower tomorrow though (at 5 a.m. since I also have to go into the office tomorrow. Ugh.). Five more sleeps until holiday…
