The boards were nailed down and typically the nails stayed in the supporting joists and the boards pulled off the nails. Many boards split or broke as they were lifted and the ones in the south west corner showed extensive signs of rot where the boards abutted the walls.

The floor boards in the store room were lifted ready for the builders to lay in the heating pipework. The floor boards were kept in the room and will be relaid once the heating has been comissioned.
