BUILD DAY seventy eight

flooring with Adrian

Tuesday 27th May 2014

We got going faster today, but it’s totally knackering work, definately  the hardest part so far. I’d had it by the end of the day and wanted to stop. We now have just under half the floor complete. It will look fantastic when it’s all sanded down to one level and then oiled.

    I don’t understand the use of the biscuits. Can you explain or show in pics? I’d be ever so grateful . . .
    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

      Yes of course. I an see that it is rather obscure and lacks pictorial explanation.

      We were concerned that the ends of the floorboards might rise up over time so we used a biscuit cutter to make slits at the ends of each floorboard. We then inserted the wooden oval ‘biscuits’into these slots and banged the floorboards together during fitting.

      Would you like photos?

      I hope this helps
