They put up what they laughingly referred to as a "curtain" across the doorless doorway to the kitchen. It was about as effective as a tissue in a hurricane.
As I have an open plan kitchen/diner I was concerned for my new kitchen when they did the work in the dining room but they were brilliant they virtually sealed the opening. They wrapped the end of a dust sheet around a piece of wood the size of the opening which they wedged floor to ceiling with wooden props and weighted the bottom down with another length of wood. They put dustsheets down to protect the kitchen floor and dust sheets in the hallway, the guys only came in and out of the door in the dining room and if they needed the loo they came in via the lounge patio doors and removed their shoes so I had very little dust and dirt, well impressed
People who are wrong are just as sure they're right as people who are right, the only difference is they're wrong
As we had the kitchen door bricked up and have an open plan kitchen/living room I doubt there is much more they can do to prevent the dust. They've got the windows open but are limited for space and, more importantly, they have to emerge to access the kettle, tea and biscuits. LOL
The Elusive Electrician is supposedly back on Friday to finish all the re-wiring and that should be the last of the messy jobs. Fingers crossed.
Yes I bought them on offer for £3.50 I think but you really don't need many flung in with the wash so they will last a long time. I think they'll be really good for bedding and towels. I might use a little more on those. I like clothes to smell clean but not too much of whatever I've used to wash them in.
