Not much construction work (if any). Only have the evenings for work these few days and I had a social visit from someone who actually wanted my ceiling debris for their garden (?!?!?). I wasn't going to argue so half the bagged up plaster has gone which is a blessing. Thanks for the info on the tip Paul, I'll take the rest there.
On work side, I have been pulling lathe nails out the joists which is bloody tedious and most of them broke off anyway so took a lot longer than expected. Boring stuff.
On deliveries, I am all set for the plywood floor boarding and "rockwool". Seems there is a East Anglian shortage of RW3 at the moment. I could get it delivered at the end of the week but it would be excessively expensive ~£28 per pack. Another dealer said they just couldn't get it and another said I would have to wait until end of July. Eventually, I settled on 100mm Rocksil RS60 which is the same density so hopefully OK. I've ordered through Travis Perkins who are doing it at about £14.20 per pack. That price sounds better than it is because with RS60, you get three slabs per pack (not 4 as per RW3). Even so the price is pretty good and matches the price for the last lot of RW3 I had delivered back in February. I've also ordered the marine ply (25mm) which is about £67.50.
PS: I started a new thread because I thought people would be interested in seeing the real work happen rather than churning through lots of preamble, most of which is about wiring! Hopefully, this thread will be much more compact and easier to digest.

I hear you Paul!
Unfortunately, space and logistics of positioning meant that anything I selected for the fan system would be a compromise. I nearly abandoned the fan altogether at one point in the design because I couldn't see how to work it in a satisfactory way. What I've got at least enables me to vent the room- I'm pretty certain that at low revs, it will be virtually inaudible and then I can whack the speed up during breaks.
I would love to have been able to do a professional job like yours but you'll have to trust me - whichever way I planned it, there was going to be a problem.
