Renovation Update: In with the New
The removal phase is over and we’re on to installing the new floor.
Before we could start, core samples were taken from the foundation. To our delight, the report came back positive! While the upper layers were in very poor condition, the foundation was solid. That means we did not have to replace the foundation, which was a big unknown going into this project. Once the foundation had the OK, work began on installing the new layers.
The first to go in was the heating mat. After a few days under pressure, the first 150mm of concrete was poured on top of the pipes.
Watch the first layer of concrete being installed:
We now have two layers of insulation on the floor, with the top layering being sealed this week (June 18).
