Stripping down the old kitchen ceiling reveals we’re in luck: There’re enough original oregon pine planks to fix the sunroom’s flooring.

The old kitchen ceiling is stripped bare, revealing beautiful original oregon pine boards. As we want to do away with those awkward stairs, we need to fill the opening with the same type of wood.

Unfortunately a lot of the original heritage components of our house had been destroyed when some badly designed ‘improvements’ were made to the building over the course of the years.

Luckily however, a lot of the resources at hand had been reused around the house. This came to light, as we stripped various parts of the 100 year old building for renovation, including the old kitchen ceiling beneath the second storey sunroom.

As we want to close up the current opening for the very awkward staircase, we need the same type of timber to complete the original flooring.

Stripping the ceiling revealed those wonderful old oregon pine planks were (ab)used to hold up the rhino board.

As all of the wood is still in good condition, we decided to not replaster the ceiling but leave it exposed. Thus, we can just use the spare floorboards.

Yeay! Instead of doing another hunt for heritage wood, we can just do the restoration with what we have. 🙂
