New floors - Day 2

Today saw the installation of the new parquet floor in the sitting/dining room.

Decisions about furniture and location have yet to be made, but the Edwardian oak bookcase has already moved to its new position..

The parquet will be continued across the door threshold, into the front hall.

Some items of furniture have already gone from the house (thank you British Heart Foundation), leaving lots of space in the walkway between sitting room and dining room.

Ron is a bit confused.

The hearth needs a bit of renovation and paint work on its concrete base.

The rooms feel light, airy, and more spacious  without a carpet and with less furniture.
