Week 83 – Microcement! Plus underfloor heating, flooring and more samples..

Happy new year!! We’ve certainly had a busy one, and are edging closer to the finishing touches!

And, I thought we were pretty much done with light decisions…no such luck ha! We actually recently changed our minds when it came to the living room ceiling light…we were going to go with a large vertigo pendant light HOWEVER  it looks so much better in situ on the landing, and as the living room is a pretty standard ceiling height, it probably would have looked a little crazy in there!

These samples are from Tom Raffield and we really like the look of the oak. It should look great with the engineered oak flooring and inchyra blue walls…

The undulating loops of timber look so cool don’t they! Definitely need to get this ordered soon…

The Skipper Pendant Light

And more flooring this week..its looking good in the open plan area, with the big windows and the bifolds.


Look at that flush threshold ha!

Plus the living room too..I’m loving the Inchyra Blue on the ceiling!

These knee pads are getting a run for their money!



I absolutely love this floor; it’s beautiful! The mixture of tones and textures works so well.

Plus underfloor heating panels upstairs, this isn’t taking long to lay at all, Andy had already done half the upstairs in one afternoon…

And more coving panels upstairs in our bedroom. Look out for more details soon, when the LED lights go up!


The plasterer has also been at ours all week, microcementing the guest ensuite and parts of the other ensuites as well. He needed to do 4 coats in total, as well as a waterproof sealant. Needless to say, we’re very happy with the finish! We really wanted a concrete look, plus it should be pretty low maintenance, too! Watch this space for more when the taps, etc. go in!

I’m glad we didn’t try to do this ourselves as you can tell it really is a skill, and takes lots of time..

And that’s it for another week! Week 84 should see more underfloor heating, and more lights yay!!
