Photo Tour – A house with no ground or first floor!

One of the conditions of getting a mortgage was to replace the floor joists in the ground floor back lounge (above the cellar) as the house survey identified dry rot in the joists where they met the wall. We decided that instead of replacing them with new wooden joists, we would install a concrete block and beam floor (photos to follow).

As we peeled back the layers we found that the large beam holding the floor joints in the back bedroom was also rotten, so we had to take out the beam and all the joists, and so we were left with a ‘hole’ for a house. You could stand in the cellar and see the loft floor!
