The floor under the boards wasn't exactly dry. I put a new waterproof coating on the concrete but it didn't take too well, and as I'd already found a hole that went down to soil I was very wary of doing much more to it. I've never heard of concreting between joists before, it appears they just threw a wooden frame down and poured it in around it? So when I got the gas pipe fixed that I went through (oops) I decided to put a new waterproof layer down before putting my new joists in, with stainless steel screws just in case. The silver is both insulation and a second vapour barrier, and is fully taped accordingly. The grey is a high tog polystyrene I got from a factory in Birmingham, then finally 22m moisture resistant chipboard on top. There is yet to be added a final layer of underlay, with it's own moisture barrier built in, and then the LVT flooring (laminate but sorta plastic).Thank you both xx
Luckily, there's a few on the Derbyshire Constabulary Facebook page....Got no chance of pictures, cos I never took any.
But this weekend I went to a Hen do. One of the nurses at work is getting married next May, and I was one of the lucky ones invited to the before celebrations.
Held at Shinington Manor, (Link below) on the shore of Carsington Water. We had the stables, while another group had the Manor House (noisy gits they were too). For some reason my satnav wouldn't accept the post code, so I drove there blind. Tiny bit of help from one of the others, but I got there all on me tod. Wasn't cheap, but how the other half live! Hot tub(gorgeous), swimming pool - too blooming cold use, though the noisy gits all jumped in.
Had a lovely time, but back down to earth with a bump, work this afternoon. Roll on the wedding.
