The ‘oak floor’ room

We took receipt of the beautiful character grade oak floorboards recently and they’ve kept us busy…



I can confirm that hammering cut nails into solid oak is hard work! Owen could whack them in with a fair few hits, whereas I was still banging them with about 30 smacks of the hammer – I kid you not!

We’ve also been prepping the walls with breathable insulation (wood fibres) ready for the wainscot panelling…





Door frames, fire doors and then lime plastering will be next… all coming together slowly but surely.
