Build Update {Preparation of walls, ceiling and floor}

Hello Dear Reader, i hope this post finds you well, there is a downgraded hurricane hitting the UK today and its is very windy and rainy outside so i am sitting cosy with a cuppa.
I am back with an update of my craft room build so far, but there are so many photos to get to the point we are today so i have split it into a couple of posts.

Now my craft room is being built in an out building off our kitchen, so we have a solid start as it is brick built and has a concrete ceiling and floor.  So first job was to prepare the surfaces.

So first stop was to damp proof the ceiling with this horrible black tar type paint that smelt really unpleasantly and the smell took 2 months to go, we then painted all the walls with emulsion one because it made the room look tidy for a family party over the summer so that we could use the room for the buffet and secondly it would make it a little easier when we secured the layers of insulation.  Next step was to put a damp proof liner on the concrete floor, which we have covered with an old off cut of carpet {extra insulation} and to batten the walls out ready for the insulation and boarding.

I will be back soon with the next instalment
Until next time
