Plastering finally underway at my place, most of the standard walls done, just need lime plastering and re-pointing done, feels like its taken forever to get this far (it has) but light at th end of the tunnel.. upstairs is just about finished plastering so ready to paint and the bathroom is getting tiled and fitted next week. Also waiting on new staircase and log burner to be fitted. I finally managed to get the york stone hearth in place (a fukers dad ended up helping me, legend Smiling ) Couple of pics of a few of the rooms

Goldie I went for these on the floor:

http://www.wallsandfloors.co.uk/catrangetiles/mosaic-tiles/oriental-marble-mosaics/blanco-hexagon-4238/5100/

and these for the walls, going to take it around the walls probably just over half way up and then fully in the shower/wetroom bit.

Yeah probably wont use it all that much, was more for the feature Laughing out loud But its ended up costing a hell of a lot more than anticipated for a feature Laughing out loud but should look good when finished off and will be the focal point for two rooms

The metro tiles from london underground place were amazing quality, but the price worked out at almost 3 times as much as above and decided it wasn't worth it, needed to draw the line somewhere

Are you kidding me? That timber panelling looks nice. I woulda kept that for sure and just changed the floor. What are you trying to do, change it into a goth fantasy castle?

Doesn't matter anyway only place I'll ever own is a van down by the river..

Laughing out loud

Why would I want a reception/office in my front room Laughing out loud The nice timber paneling was laminated mdf.. each to their own.

The wall above the fire and down the side will be lime plastered also, so all I have done is removed the office/wood/carpet squares and re-plastered. I'm not planning on throwing a sofa, CRT TV and Dreamcast in it as it is..

Okay I thought it was a real wood veneer. That would.ve made an awesome room, lots of platforms and storage.

What are you going to put in it then? A single dove's feather placed in a glass case in the centre of a completely white room?

There wasnt all that much storage to be honest, just cupboard right in the middle of the fire and a shelf to the side, the rest was just paneling. I'll dig out the photos over the weekend of when I first bought.

Im getting Oak hardwood flooring down, I've got a 3 seater sofa and two chairs, need a rug, coffee table, maybe side table and I will be putting the TV etc in the alcove on a unit of some sort. Need some wall lights as well.

I want to keep the covers and discs (obviously), but the cases just take up too much room now

Need to streamline for my move and get rid of the hundreds of boxes I have - any good products out there for discs and covers/booklets?
