    thanks david
    was having a chat with jason today about a job that i have been appointed to for a church refurb and he mentioned that you may well be able to give some advice.
    I have had a little look see at what you specialise in and we may have quite a bit in common on the restoration /reclaimed front.
    this job all revolves around a subfloor with no dpm and laying new french limestone.
    shall i just put the question out in the open forum and we can dissect together ?

    Yes please do, I've worked on a few church floors over the years. Admittedly it has all be Victorian style flooring but always good to exchange ideas.

    I went to Greenwich last Thursday with my little boy.
    We took the clipper ferry from London eye. Great service .
    Pre booked the planetarium which was the main reason to go plus cutty sark.
    After some effort to get up to,the observatory with my dodgy tilers knee , i was informed that there was a breakdown and show not on but would be offered a refund .
    What a let down !!,
    Most people only book once to come here and we could have come another time with a bit more notice.
    That said I loved the cutty sark and the maritime museum . No other country can put on an exhibition like this but I guess they need the Hertitage to have a chance to compete.
    Strangely I went to to,quote fora floor the next day and the client was the project manager for cutty sark and he gave me some interesting info on how the restoration was achieved.
    I have done a fair bit of work on blackheath and roads down to Greenwich over the years in fantastic properties and it isa very special place .
    Just avoid the traditional homemade pie and mash shop that has recently relocated from round the corner to prime site. There is nothing prime about the beef in the pies .it was cheap as chips but the quality was absolutely dire.
    They must be paying big rent and could make a mint if they up,their game and served proper quality home made pie fare.
    They could charge treble no problem.
    What I got,reminded me of of the pies I saw in les miserables film last week .

    Don't Know how I missed You Johnny but a Belated welcome. Not on here that long myself, only getting around to actually reading old posts and interacting since the turn of the year. I have an Uncle in Surrey. Don't see him often and have no idea wherabouts In Surrey he is. For all I know he could be your best mate lol. Anyways, have fun on the Forum and no doubt we will cross "Cursors" in the near future.

    I've only had beef (but who knows these days). The thing is the way the mince is cooked, and the suet crust pastry. If you're not used to it, it's different to your usual minced beef pie.

    i did a few church floors some years ago but lost contact with architect.
    Doing this one now is taking me back .
    they are always interesting layout patterns and this is what i like to do most.
    I would be more than happy to do a floor with your product.
    Have a look see at how I have approached this floor and if you think i am up to standard you require then lets get in touch.
    regards johnny
