Brief Description: this was a WIP and is finally finished. Can I just point out I am not a carpenter but I put down a floor!! (I may have pressganged my SO and DD a little for help, but it was mostly me) white deal solid wood flooring...so many mistakes, but you never see mistakes in a floor..or at least that is what I am relying on. It was very hard work. I am battered and bruised, this almost 50 year old body is really not able to this kind of work. Especially since it was all with hand tools. the only power tool was a cordless drill. I used old fashioned square headed nails, which took a lot of work to drive them all home, by hand...did I mention that?
a not great picture of the floor...the room btw..built by me, my SO and DD..I put in the floor and ceiling joists...nto a carpenter..so lots of mistakes..including not a right angle in the place, but it is attached to a 1840 year old terraced house, so I have come to believe that the house is imposing it's lack of right angles on the addition...
and me..reaching the end of my tether on staturday..
