Snagging, Carpets and Cleaning

Maddomswood Oak Barn Conversion

Weeks 37 – 11th April to 18th April

 

This was the final week before the Barn went up for sale.

All hands to the pumps.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was on site from 0700 to 1930 each day as there was so much to do. Even though we were near the end of the project, this is always the most stressful part of any project for me. It is important to get the snagging right. The devil is in the detail and, if we have made any poor design decisions during the length of the build, then these will be exposed for all to see.

The painters finished last week and returned for 1 days snagging.

The cleaners came in after the snagging for two initial days to get most of the cleaning done and then an afternoon once the painters had finished.

Once all the cleaning and snagging had been completed the carpets were laid and the barn was staged for sale – see next post.

The last work completed was the laying of the 500m2 of Turf to create the small lawn to the front and the large garden area to the rear.
