Day 9: Damp Course and Suspended Block and Beam Floor Laid
Today most of the suspended block and beam floor was put in. They needed an extra beam so could not complete today. They followed engineering specification for the size of the room but felt that there was too much movement so after consulting with the beam supplier decided to put them in closer together.
Once the beam and block floor is down it will be covered in “slurry” – fortunately not the sort farmers use – and then a layer of insulation (about 65mm I think), and then screed (around 60-80cm I think) which will bring the floor up to current height. All this adds more stability too.
