A good nights sleep

We were both feeling unwell yesterday. There has been a lot of dust in the house, and a lot of extra noise. Fortunately the builder is busy today, so we have a long weekend on our own, and after 12+ hours sleep some of the worst symptoms of a cold that I had yesterday have past.

What's under your floor?

I finally finished taking up the dining room floor this afternoon, so it will be a lot quieter over the weekend as we are only cutting the insulation and fitting it between the floor joist. I've nailed some battens across the underside of the joist to support the insulation board.

Here is the first bit of insulation, and also the new HEP water pipe.


  1. Hope you don't do too much when you're not feeling 100%. It's great to see the progress though.

  2. I can't wait to read the next instalment. When I put insulation under my bedroom in Eagleton I had to crawl through a small trap and put fibreglass into the gaps between the joists and then netting to hold it in place. I think your method is the one I'll use next time!
