This week the majority of the Blackbutt timber floors were laid. We selected 130mm wide flooring which will tie in with the existing floorboards, however we are using 60mm boards in the corridors.
|Floorboards ready to sand. We are finishing the floors with Whittlewax Hard Wax Oil.|
|Living Room - Don't freak out but this used to be the old bathroom. The sash window was relocated to this room from the old lounge room.|
Did you know that all new timber floors require cork expansion joints to prevent the floorboards from expanding and popping up? When I found out about this the other day I freaked out and thought our new floors would look hideous. Luckily the cork is the same colour as the timber so it's not all that obvious. Did anyone of you guys who have recently had new floors laid experience the same thing? Happy with the end result?
A pair of custom-built metal window hoods that sit over the boys' bedroom windows were fitted this week. Here is a profile:

Everyone on IG has already seen this shot of our back door with arch surround which has come up a treat, however it's not functional yet as there are no stairs. The bricklayers return next week to construct the masonry stairs at the back door and also complete the garden walls.
I can't go anywhere without my little chimney man following me!
