Day 470 - more studwork and reed mat test

Rather than using plasterboard on the internal timber stud walls, we are trying out reed mat.  It works in a similar way to laths (as in traditional lath and plaster).  We were quite impressed how easily it went up - so far so good!

We progressed more of the studwork upstairs today (excuse the mess!).

Day 463 - Ground floor studwork progressed

We have not done much work on the house this month - partly because we have been allowing the screed to dry and partly because we fancied a break!  We are now back into it and have made good progress on the ground floor studwork today - just the doorways and noggins to do.  I think we are finally getting better at studwork!
