New Floor in the Riviersonderend House

The floors in our house in Riviersonderend were rotting so we needed to replace them. Follow us on a floor replacement journey with Tertius and Reggie.
Starting the lift.


The dry rot is easily seen here:


Building the pillars and cutting the joist holes


Bitumin and plastering.

Then sand and more bitumin

Plastic and lime, then the bearers


Nearly finished the bearers

Finishing touches

And it was snowing outside.

Riviersonderend Flood Detour

How do you know when you have inadvertently done something kinda stupid and gotten away with it without breaking anything? Easy, you see this in your rear view mirror.

How did we get into this situation? Simple, we didn’t want to turn around when the road looked like this.

But then it got a bit more tense — note the whirl pool on the left bottom of the picture

And then we decided to investigate

And the road went ever onward and turning places became less obvious. And road kinda disappeared at times.

And then we were out

Interesting trip
