Home Improvements: More Floors


Here are few more photos of the floor drying. Each photo is clickable for easier viewing, although easier doesn’t always mean more interesting.


A Floor Drying: The self-levelling latex subflooring in the process of drying … and I’m suddenly reminded of the phrase “boring as watching paint dry” so I hope I don’t put everyone to sleep with these photos.


And More Floors Drying …. oh dear …. the same floor now dry and level. And are you still with me? Should I make some coffee to keep you awake?


And Floor Boards in the living room. They have a matt finish, which really reveals the grain of the wood nicely.


Clear Pane in Bathroom Window: And here’s a more revealing photo of the bathroom window with its lower-right corner pane unfrosted. Total silliness that this happened, but the manufacturer is going to replace it so all’s well that ends well.

Well that’s it for now!

    Nothing like watching paint dry but probably not as exciting as watching bread rise in the oven. I’m so looking forward to seeing your place all finished and everything back in its place. I think you’re very brave doing all this lots of love Joanna

      But I love watching bread rise in the oven. It’s magic! 🙂

      Next week they start bashing up the old kitchen. Exciting times. xx

    I also like the matte finish on that floor. I suspect that the coupe floor will be very similar. Did you put in underfloor heating too? We are doing that for Nanny as well. I always think that if your feet and head are warm you are half way there. (I am presently sitting on the couch with a pillow on my feet and a sheepskin hat on my head!).. have a lovely evening misky.. c

      Yes, underfloor heating is set into that grey self-levelling subflooring. The electrician needs to connect up things, and then the floor is set by a thermostat separate from the central heating. That way we can warm things up a bit without firing up the boiler when it’s cold. Skirting boards go back on tomorrow, then the kitchen fittings arrived on Wednesday. I’ve been emptying the cupboards all weekend, sorting through stuff. It seems I’m a pack rat! 🙂

        oops.. well I have always found that throwing the rat and his pack out is a wonderful lightening feeling! c

    Slowly but surely, it is all coming together for you. The floor is beautiful.

      I’m not sure what’s with the weather; a second ice age maybe, but it’s sure making this project a chilly one!!

  4. There’s nothing toastier and cozier than underfloor heating! You must be so excited with every step towards your finished renovation!! xx

      we’ve decided to ‘refresh’ and upgrade the bathrooms this autumn, so underfloor heating will go in there also. It will be nice!
