After many phonecalls, agonising about the colour, and changing the wooden floorboards from one room to another, we at last have a kitchen floor. It was great when someone asked only days later "are the floorboards really old?". We went for a 'distressed' finished on the basis that they would be scratched and dented by us within hours - and yes they were!

The lounge also has its carpet (plus its first muddy pawprint.....),

and here's me grouting the utility room floor. I think this is the only time we will see the grout as this will truly be covered in mud and dog fluff for most of the time. Not that we particularly want to be dirty, we just can't help it!

I blame all the log-fetching, wall building and gardening.
