Nearly two months after my floods (Icons passim) the initial (it's a long story) insurance claim is settled and the builders arrived this morning to take down the ruined ceiling.
After that the electrician will come in to replace the shorted lights and wiring.
After that the builders will come back to board up the ceiling again.
After that the plasterer will attend.
Once the plaster is dry, the builders will come back to put up the coving and sort out the decoration.
We're not out of the woods yet.
