Jess' room at very beginning of our work. The board at back wall was in chimney breast. badly. we are doing it properly.
We decide to move the sockets from waist height to foot height. We think this room was a kitchen in years past.
Touched up walls and switches moved, ready for painting
It onlyl takes a gentle tug to pull the electrical cable from the wall. The plaster is not all it should be!
Nick using steamer to remove every last bit of paint from Jessica's ceiling. What an awful chore!
Skirting board removed, plastering of wall begun and the stripping of the ceiling continues. What a mess!

Note that my hair is covered in plaster dust, not grey hairs!
The stripped ceiling and streaky wall from the steamer
I won't quit my day job but it's not bad plastering if I do say so myself.
The walls and the radiator are now painted!
Pretty new skirting board where once there was none.
Carpet up ready to paint the skirting boards
New light fixture
New curtain rod and holdbacks. The rod is now straight by the way, not raised in the centre like the pic shows
Repairing floorboards. All sorts of strange crap under those boards!
