First few hours work was removing the wardrobe and all of its paraphenalia.
But it is never as easy as you think when doing DIY. Turns out that the wardrobe was installed before the room was covered in plasterboard and carpet - hence the bloody thing is built like a brick sh**house and constructed into the frame of the room. This also means that the plasterboard and carpet have a gap in them where the frame attached to the walls, floor and ceiling.
So this morning a trip to the hardware store was in order to get a crowbar and the fun started. Two hours (and a very sore back) later all is removed and I am ready to get new plasterboard to fill the gaps.
