Look At Them Floorboards Love.
First things first, to rip up the carpet and check out those floorboards...
We hit the jackpot here. SO lucky that there was only a tiny section of floor that was not the original rimu floorboards.
In the living room, you can see where we had to rip up part of the flooring as there used to be a chimney here…the owners that took out the fireplace, placed chipboard down on the floor here. After a little trip to Musgroves in Christchurch, we were able to replace these boards with some more rimu.
The kitchen and bathroom spaces had a layer of hardwood over the top and this was one of the biggest, backbraking jobs our builder had to tackle. These spaces were then tiled.
