Removing Architrave and Skirting
We decided to replace all the woodwork in the Lounge/Diner as it was looking very tired and mismatched and it was coming away from the walls in places. We started, naturally, by ripping it all out, but were not fully prepared for the state of some of the plaster underneath it!
Preparing the Existing Floor
When we started our Lounge/Diner renovations, there was a large bump in the middle of the room where there used to be a wall. This needed to be fixed before laying the solid wood top floor to prevent it from becoming damaged and warped over time and to make it easier to lay.
