It’s the little things that make the difference


So we had talked about what to do about the floor in the new bathroom, and then Zoe had a beautiful and also cheap idea.

I rang City Timber (Thorndon Quay) and asked about ply options, within 10 minutes I had ordered two sheets of Fijian Kauri to be cut into ‘planks’ – these were given a solid polyurethane coating while Zoe was at the house last week by herself and then she cut and laid the floor as you can see.

A final sanding and poly coat before we left last weekend and it’s all done, smart, durable and warm under foot. Oh and the cost?

$210 for the ply and $42 for the polyurethane + Zoe’s labour costs which were red wine and being fed when I was there for the weekend.
