Home Pod the 12th year Revamp

So twelve years on from building the grass roofed visitors “shed” we decided to do a revamp and create a crafted comfortable chalet style accommodation for four people. Initially it was a complete empty of the building and then grinding down the concrete floor to get a polished concrete floor rather than the screed painted finish that we had for the last twelve years. The contractor who put the floor in all those years ago could have done a better job. So this was the place to start.

The floor twelve years of use all scratched and a few cracks

We hired a concrete grinder and spent a day running over and over the floor, cleaning up the dust each time. It was a hard day, but the 24 hour hire period was non negotiable so we worked hard.

This machine weighed a ton, however it was very easy to use, apart from all the cleaning between run overs

We are very happy with the finish, and went on to use a floor sealer “smartseal” product to give the concrete a deep sheen finish, it’s very nice.

The floor before sealing
Many coats of sealant gave a lovely finish, here the sealant is still drying.

So we now have a clean flat and sealed floor, very happy with it and a nice platform to work from.
