As with most jobs its the twiddly bits that take the time; like over the windows and around the doors etc
Still on the good side i'm finding the taping and jointing very easy going, on the grounds that Julia is doing it. This is a strategy I'm liking a lot.
Once we (Julia) have finished the prep to the walls then we (Julia again) can paint and then we (ok me this time) can do the floor. Now the floor I am looking forward to doing. Its 165mm wide 22mm thick solid French oak and its going to look fab, in a puritanical / monastic kind of way.
