Comment: The living room floor - black to absorb as much solar gain as possible from the large south-east and south-west glazing.
Mr. Augustin, who had done the screed over the underfloor heating pipes, came and laid the black 'slate' ceramic floor tiles.

The living area tiled but without grouted joints.

The tiling in the sous-sol shower room and laundry.

Tiling without grouting in the 'buanderie'.

Tiling in the hall in the sous-sol.  There will eventually be a partition and door separating the tank room.

Kitchen floor tiles before grouting.

Tiling in the WC.

And the entrance hall.

Margaret posing after having cleaned the tiles with vinegar.  At this stage it all begins to look quite finshed.  But that is an illusion.

While Mr Augustin grouted the joints we had been finishing putting insulation into the timber framed walls upstairs.

Margaret trying to decide whether to have tiled internal cills in the kitchen as there were a lot left over.
