We are renovating our new bought (old) house. Tomorrow they finally start with the making of the new floor in 2 rooms. :bingo:

My father has been making jokes for months: "aah now you can plant patatoes in the living room" :blink: .

After the floor the electricity will be finished. Then new wallpaper and furniture :D .

So the big move is coming closer :gcar:

The before pics were discusting. Really :yikes . I don't think the previous owner had ever heard about cleaning and not trowing garbage in the yard, barn or house *yuk*

It amazes me how some people can live! The owner of the last house we were in never renovated anything--most of the house was original. Around here a major investment is air conditioning, and he didn't do it, and lived there for 11 years without it! (It regularly gets over 100 degrees F here, like today!).

So you literally had no floor in the house?? That is crazy!! Can't wait to see pics of it all fixed up. It will be so exciting to move into a nice house that is personalized with your touch and just the way you want it!

(And that cruising goldfish just cracks me up!)

Actually, we did have a floor, but there was not concrete underfloor, and given that the floor needs to carry a 20 and a 75 gallon tank, we thought it only prudent to remove the floor and get a proper one :) . (that, and the fact that the floor wasn't isolated at all, so the 'small' investment we make now, should save us a lot on heating :D )

We had floors, but it wasn't level anymore /was really disgusting carpetlike glued stuff, and not safe to hold a 400 kg aquarium (70 gal tank with heavy stand), so it had to go. We went to a firm for a new one, made 'the deal' and then started digging up the 'old floor'. By the time the new floor arrived, there was already moss growing on the soil. :blink:

Can't wait to see what everything looks like when it's done : )

Neither can we :-)

We've already been notified that (a part of / most of) the furniture for in the dining and living room have arrived in the supplier, so hopefully we'll get those room done and 'up and running' relatively fast :) .

uh huh... just a 20 gallon and 75 gallon...? now that you own your own house, with a new, "aquarium-proof" floor, I see more than just two aquariums in your future! lol! :teehee

The isolation and the 'chape' is in place. No idea what the English word is, so if someone knows it, feel free. :D It is the stuff between the concrete and the stones itself.

Suddenly both those rooms look a lot better :exactly:P .

So in a week time there will be a floor :happydance

btw: Alain took pics, I'll try to post some off them this afternoon :P

There has been some delay. But a big part of the living floor already has floor (as in stone slabs) :D Some small problems had to be conquered, like a hole in the concrete in the living room and to much concrete in the drawing room (sp?). But the end is near :rofl and the move is coming closer :gcar:

It's the 'dining room' actually. (and any excuse is good to use that cruising gf emoticon, right? ;) )

The floor in the living is practically finished (only the 35 in? forgotten part needs to be tiles, and the joints (?) between the tiles still have to be done). We expect it to be finished at the start of next week. :D

There has been a delay as in it still isn't done completely (the guy had 2 square feet of 'not enough tiles', don't ask :blink: ), we still have 2 square feet of 'empty' floor, but he would fix it by tomorrow. At the moment the electricians are installing (2/3 of) the heating system and doing some finishing touches. They will come back next week for the other 1/3 due to the 'lack of tiles'.

The end is near :rofl
