I don't own a new van, it's second hand. I don't own a new Octavia either, it's leased. Well spec'd but underpowered for tax purposes (company car).

I will get some photos up when I get chance. 15 hours at work and I've very little sleep over the past couple of days as the little one has been sick.


Still waiting on boots to develop the photos?

Its a shame we don't have a way of say taking digital photos, maybe on a device that we keep with us.. Like say a phone? And maybe if then someone provided a free service to upload and host those images?

OMFG.. BRB.. About to make my millions..

Done well almost. Still need to do 1 piece at the doorway which is going to be a Ballache, but it's as good as done.

I got them from B&Q a few years ago. They did 6ft and 8ft widths, iirc. They're wood, rather than pvc/aluminium.

I think they were £1100 at the time, so quite reasonable. My dad got quoted over £3500 for some alu ones in 8ft width

The missus decided she wanted the same flooring in the hallway. This means an extra job for me which I didn't plan on. Removed the old laminate, edging and underlay today (I have a severe hatred for fibreboard) and fitted the Selitbloc underlay I had left over from the bedroom.

It would've been too awkward as it's right in the corner. Didn't wanna slip and end up slicing into anything else
