Ground Floor Works Begin

After a long break, work has started again. Over the next month, the heating system on the remaining ground and first floors will be completed, which involves the excavation of the entire ground floor of the house. This is so a very unique, breathable limecrete slab can be laid under the floorboards, which will incorporate the proposed under-floor heating system.

The first stage was to lift the floor boards carefully and store them off site. Next, excavation of the soil beneath begins, right down to foundation level. As detailed in previous posts, the ground floor rear room had a concrete slab installed by the previous owners, which has contributed to damp problems. It had to be broken up and removed also:

Note the short stone walls laid into the soil, to support the floor joists:
