Attic Attack [Jul. 30th, 2014|09:27 pm]

Attic July 2014

This is my office right now. Paperwork all boxed-up, desks on two different floors, computers stashed I'm not sure where, and half the floor is up. Also right now the office is really, really hot. So when my accountant calls to suggest now would be a good time for me to get my tax return figures over to him, I coolly tell him "I'm on it." and "No worries." all the time thinking "Oh shit!". Oh well I've got until January, although my accountant has told me he can't do everyone's returns in January.

In the mean time... I'm sorting out the floor and working out where the radiator will go. Working out where the radiator will go is hard for two reasons. Firstly given the heat up in the attic/office right now it's hard to get my head around the concept of needing extra heat up there. Secondly I'm waiting for the cast-iron radiator to arrive. I did think I could suss out the positioning of the radiator from the specifications supplied on the companies Website, however there is a warning on the site that all measurements should be taken with a 4% + or - pinch of salt. Not what you want to read when you're trying to precisely position pipes ahead of radiator delivery, so the boards can be in place, so the panelling can be in place, so the radiator can be put in as soon as it arrives. Well... as soon as it's been hauled up two flights of stairs. The radiator weighs 100kg (220.462 pounds), presumably this figure is also subject to a + or - 4%, so there's much beefing up joists.
