Although we are at a lull in the build, this weekend was spent installing the floors for the wet areas. We had purchased a few sheets of James Hardie cement sheeting and used this as our flooring choice before we add tile on top.
My husband was back on the saw cutting up the sheets to size. He had to determine the best way to use what sheets we had without too much wastage and also ensuring we wouldn’t run out. I think I prefer the former though as it can be a pain to reorder, not to mention costly due to delivery charges.
As the assistant, I helped by helping Anthony by carrying the heavy sheets around, definitely a 2 person job! I also hammered in nails post nail gun and used liquid nails to seal up the joins. It was quite a task getting those last few pieces in.
Adding in the floors was pretty exciting, not just being able to step in the room and freely walk around without falling through, but it allowed me to get a sense of the size.
