Taking a break

Ever wondered what we do - quick guide to installing a wooden floor

Our 'break' last weekend and beginning this week was more a 'work'-break. (Not only did Ton and his nephew install a wooden floor for Ton's sister; I took 'time-off' to re-think our vision-purpose-mission for the coming years - after I was 'dismissed' as the 'not-fit-enough' fitting assistant).

This is what we - well Ton - do for a 'living':
You start with an emptied room

Then you fill the emptied area with as much (professional) tools as you can

Most important: using the correct underlayment for the underfloor your working on and making sure the first few rows are as straight as can be.

Working together does help (and wearing  embroidered T-shirts with company name does make a professional impression - Sieger, Ton's nephew didn't want to part with it later on, so we let him keep it ;-))

The 'end-result', always nice to see (to be honest, first part of the end-result, the living room part of the open plan ground floor still had to be installed at that time)

And after a hard days work (the whole 4 hours it took to install the 35 sq m of Duoplank Oak Rustic, brushed and oiled Castle Grey) it's good to discuss the end result with the client, who happily provided some much needed beverages.

Lovely job ;-)
(The results of my own 'work'-break are a bit harder to show off, take a while longer to establish themselves and don't come with a 4-seasons guarantee also. Time will tell.)
