Flooring

One of the last big jobs in our renovations has begun - the laying of the new floor downstairs.
We have chosen a relatively new product on the market. It is a bamboo floating floor, and it is covering all the miss matched pieces of flooring that have resulted from previous additions to the house, and the holes and patches resulting from the removal of walls during the past 5 months.
We chose bamboo because is solid (14mm thick), it is hard/durable (equivalent to a hardwood floor), and it is a sustainable product.

Having the floor laid today has forced me upstairs to read. A luxury!
This week I have taken some LSL (4 days) and have painted for 22 hours over the past two days in a desperate attempt to finish before the floor arrived. I almost succeeded. Just trims and a few touch-ups needed now.
