Autumn - The Red House
Well, it's definitely autumn now. We've passed the equinox sometime very early this morning. For everyone in the northern hemisphere the days are now slightly shorter than 12 hours long.
The new bathroom in the Red House is slowly taking form. The plumber has fitted modern (plastic) drains for the toilet, sink and shower to empty into. The carpenter has now replaced the considerable insulation and the floors and walls. The floor and ceiling are so far plywood. The walls are plywood, covered in plasterboard. Later the walls and floors will be sealed in plastic.
The picture shows the dead immersion heater that caused all the bathroom problems, and the old cast iron pipes, together with a bit of scrappy insulation.
It seems to be coming along well but will we have water and a toilet in place in 12 days when we will be staying in the Red House? (We are lending our house to visitors.) Or will we be sleeping there and using the toilet in the camper van??
Writing of the camper van, we have been setting up today for a trip starting tomorrow. The weather forecast here is for a lot of rain over the next few days, while the weather in the mountains, and in Norway is for dry times. We've been trying to fit in a trip and now seems to be the moment, so tomorrow, if things go as planned, I'll be blipping from the mountains separating Sweden and Norway. Hopefully, it won't be raining!
