Now that our screed floor is dry enough to stand on, plumbing work has recommenced with the installation of the underfloor heating for the first floor.
Unlike the ground floor where the pipes are encased in the screed, we’ll be carpeting most of the first floor. Therefore, the underfloor heating pipes are weaved through the joists and clipped to the underside of the wood floor boards.
Like the ground floor, there is a separate manifold on the first floor where all the pipes terminate. Eventually, this will be connected to the boiler to distribute hot water and heat the various parts of the first floor.
