Dining room update

We are working on our dining room, see this post.
Progress so far:
Walls completely stripped of paint covered wallpaper and dado rails, skirting boards removed.

Fireplace opening filled in, and two power points relocated (one in alcove would have been inaccessible with furniture in front of it, and one on the party wall with the conservatory is in the wall to be partially demolished for door/window replacement).

Wallpaper chosen, 15 metres of fabric for curtains, seat covers, etc. purchased

Curtains and seat covers cut to size.

Replacement door/window booked for Friday 25th January, plasterers booked for week following, central heating engineer booked Saturday Feb 2nd to fit replacement radiator.

Another update next month.

Great to see progress - it will look so good when it's done.

I am wondering whether you would be able to email details of your plasterer please? We may be a bit far away though ...

Hope you don't mind me asking.
