Week 77..we have a floor!!

Another week and the first of the flooring has been laid, in the soon to be tiki bar! We decided to measure from the centre of the house, as the same floor will run through the whole of the ground floor. And as luck would have it, our house is so symmetrical, the herringbone pattern is central in the tiki bar, central staircase, and living room ha!

Doesn’t it look good against the Inchyra Blue (living room colour). I love the grain, and finish, so so pleased with this!

And it’s been taking shape in the tiki bar along with the Hague Blue walls! Andy’s been mixing up the boxes to add a bit of interest to the floor, and character! Plus we love the little knots here and there…

One weekend later and we pretty much have one room done yay! It’s a good job we have some holidays and Christmas off, given we both work full time! Such a shame we aren’t retired ha! And Andy is laying the floor himself, using Murexin

This flooring is called 70mm Engineered Brushed & UV Oiled Smoked Charnwood Oak Parquet Block Wood Flooring and is from Ambience hardwood flooring

Plus before Andy starts on the hallway, the staircase will need a good sand in week 78..we have a concrete staircase. We then need to decide whether to just seal it and add some wood treads, or go with a microcement…stay tuned!

We love this look and hopefully can keep the concrete as is, and add similar treads…

Watch this space!
