Yes, i have now a donor board, once i receive the stencil, i will give a try to that and see.
Sure i can, we are currently working on the water supply and bathroom, basically besides blocks and bricks and concrete for the floors where of course we asked for help, we are doing everything on our own (even more his own then mine, because i just go to help at the end of my working day and during weekend).
We started in 2019/09
Here my father welding the link between basement steel to the walls one, if you remember i told you this is is primary job, with car mechanical.
And here where you can see a stainless steel sheet that do the complete turn of the basement which stands between the floor and the walls, 50/50 in each, to prevent any water infiltration between the 2 concrete parts (walls are made after the floor).
Works well, as you can see, water stays inside.
And basement finished, 40cm of concrete, all painted against water infiltration.
Then floor, as you can see, we finished very late
Then first floor, same story, notice also that some steel bar goes inside the beams
Floors achieved :
Then on the roof defining all the electrical point for lights and other stuff as well as the ventilation system, as this will then be covered by sloping screed (hope this is the right word) and then a waterproof membrane (EPDM), you need to do it right immediately.
Then EPDM installation with isolation (yes from Firestone both funny)
Then water pipes from the roof, as you can see, we installed them in a way that they will be hidden behind the facade bricks. Then we just left them waiting the water tank installation.
Then starting the bricks
First floor, restarting to weld what we call here “Corbel angle iron”, it is what will support bricks above the window in a very discrete manner, no visible concrete support from bottom :
Then more bricks and more support for the second floor window
And this part finished
Now famous water tank installed, we can link the pipes from the roof to it:
Now with Window installed
Then working inside, electricity, pipes, ventilation, smaller stuff.
Then smaller interesting stuff that may help, we installed empty pipes going from televisions to desk in my kids room and the sofa room, so that i can pull wires without seeing them from a place to another and the television can be suspended on the wall.
And the amount of network cable coming in the basement
