Floors – Part II
During November and into December (after the windows were fitted) we continued our work with the floor. On top of the hardcore we laid DPM and insulation boards. As we both work full-time, whole weekends were spent trying to get the insulation done. We desperately wanted the floors completed before Christmas, unfortunately getting the job done took a lot longer than we initially anticipated. It was like putting together a massive jigsaw puzzle! The house has little nooks everywhere, which made the job extra fiddly! We’d find patches where boards were rocking and have to take them all up to put sand down to fill in any uneven areas. It seemed never-ending and the longer it went on we knew it would be a miracle to get the insulation, underfloor heating pipe work and a screed completed, all before Christmas. Even with all the late nights that were spent at Number 18, unfortunately we just couldn’t get it finished in time for the plumber to start before Christmas. Deadlines – don’t ya just love em!?
