Flooring, heating and installing the ceiling speakers

Heating system is fully installed , tested and working! We started from scratch and ran new piping throughout for both the heating and water supplies. As explained earlier I went with a conventional condensing boiler and radiator set up , the only change to the plan was installing underfloor heating in the new extension.  I was concerned with having a 6 meter bi fold and a large roof lantern that this could leave this area of the extension colder than the rest of the house.

Finally some of the fun bits I want. A big thank you to Simon at Bartlett's Hifi who came round and installed the ceiling speakers .

The picture above shows the speakers which are evenly spaced across the front of where the projector screen will drop from. The TV itself is off centre but this is due to the position of the chimney breast and we had no other options.

Picture below are the four speakers around the dining and kitchen area.  The bathroom and upstairs bedroom have also had the speakers installed.

I am really pleased with the monitor audio ceiling speakers. Visually very unobtrusive and blend in well.

Simon recommended and supplied a Grandview Cyber Screen. I am pretty excited to see this in action. For the last ten years I have just been using cheap screen I bought for £100 from eBay. I opted for the in-ceiling screen so when the screen is not in use it sits flush within the ceiling and you can't see it. The screen size is 8ft. Compared to other projector screens which can retail for several thousands + the Grandview is cheap with a RRP of £1150 it's much , much cheaper than everyone else . It comes with a remote and 12v trigger.

On to the flooring which has all been laid. This alone took 3 days!

A feature wall opposite the chimney breast. Instead of wallpaper we used tiles here. (please note the tiles had just been grouted so were wet round the edges when I took this picture . Once they dry the borders won't be obvious)

The kitchen has also been installed but will update that shortly.
