Building Progress ~ November 2007, week 3 and 4

Category: Barn Conversion Journal December 10th, 2007 by mbc

Through to the end of November progress has been mainly on filling back in what has been taken out!
exterior excavations

The original internal floors were removed and extra excavation carried out to give sufficient depth for the new floor. The new floor comprises of a layer of well bedded in hard-core, then a damn proof membrane (which incorporates radon protection), then a layer of concrete. That is the stage we reached at the end of November.

This will then be completed with a layer of insulation that will include the underfloor heating pipes, a layer of scree above that to provide thermal mass for the heating system, then finally tiles (slate or limestone – not decided yet).
