We finished the threshold under the utility room door today - its amazing how long all these little jobs take! We tried out using recycled plastic timber, as this will not rot, is recycled and will prevent a cold bridge. It claims you can treat it exactly like timber - saw it, drill it, fix it etc. We managed most things, however we did not have any success trying to nail it with the nail gun! It is also heavier than timber.

Day 407 - Internal walls set out on GF
Sole plates for the internal walls downstairs set out and fixed down, in preparation for the underfloor heating to be laid.
The utility room/ plant room is behind the plywood wall, there is a small WC and then a study / sitting room on the right of the photo. The entrance lobby can be seen in the back left of the photo and the hall / stairs will be on the left. The photo is taken from the main living space which will be used as the kitchen, dining and sitting area.
