The loft floor just gets better!

This shot proves that we can clear the floor, more or less - well, it is still work in progress, after all!

The en-suite, however, is a different story!  Thank goodness I showed it to you when it was new and shiny:-)

This is what the blocks looked like after their first, rough sanding down.  Pretty good when you think they had paint and years of grime on them.

This gorgeous, warm, full-grained solid oak flooring is what we now have upstairs (there's that strange word, upstairs, again!!)  Don't you think he's done a good job with the sanding machines? 

He's used a belt sander, which I bought a short while ago specifically for this task, and a small, detail sander, one of those shaped a bit like an old flat iron.  I think he's done a really good job, and would recommend buying old oak flooring to anyone who doesn't mind a little lot of hard work.

  1. Love it! I really don't mind a lot of hard work--watching someone do it that is!


Sadly, I've turned on comment moderation as I recieived a pornographic advert from another country. Unless your comment is particularly unpleasant, rest assured, it will appear on the blog!

Thank you for your understanding :)
