DIY - Part 6 - Floor footings go in

Just finished putting in the footings for the foundations of the dining room floor. It took a little while to complete but now we’re on the final leg of the work. Once this has dry Rick (The Plasterer / Builder) will build a platform for the floor boards to sit on. Talking of floorboards, I was hoping to put down reclaimed boards but they are around £30 per square yard so will opt for new boards at around £16 to save costs. Anyhow as I’m going to stain and varnish I don’t suppose it matters if the boards are new or not.
