The final filling and rubbing all the surfaces including the ceiling is done! Yesterday we routed the bull nose shape on the light channel’s flange to make it blur and soften the edge.
Then the Grand Clean Up!
We swept and vacuumed everything, all over the place! So much so the filter on the vacuum wore out and started throwing dust back out into the room! We switched over to our emergency backup machine!
Then just before lunch we squirted a line of PU sealant, very tough and fully waterproof, all the way along the edges of the Fermacell boards where it almost meets the concrete floor. We had left a couple of millimetres for this and hopefully this will provide a 99% barrier to major spills in the life time of the garage and not soak into the fabric of the building!
After lunch it was the final stage of the Clean Up operation, the hot water and sponge treatment! The long handle mop for the ceiling and good old fashioned sponge for the walls. Nice grey brown water with a pile of wet goo at the bottom of the bucket!
Tomorrow It is the White Wash Day! We have taken a light level reading and with just the flood lights on we had a reading of approx. 80lux off the walls!
