Get on the floor

Today we took our first meaningful delivery. Our first steps towards fitting out. We've managed to get hold of some reclaimed floorboards, which we will sand, recondition and stain. We have enough for the kitchen and lounge but not for the master bedroom. So we will have to either find a similar batch or look at other options.

Long term family friend Rob, who owns Castle Antiques in Bedford, gave us a great deal on these boards and they were very kindly delivered by our new friend Peter who generously passed on his floorboard laying expertise whilst helping to unload the boards.

The picture shows the boards laid loose.

  1. Great blog guys all caught up! She looks massive. Loads of room under that floor you might want to think about using free fridge or chiller general storage for robust items. Looking forward to regular posts from you to keep us up to speed. Good job you met Tom & Jan so I found your blog. A great hospitable couple I'm sure you'll agree.
    More soon cheers
