Yesterday I left you, and the bar, with a hole in the ground. Today I rectified the situation, framed out the hole, for support ...
... and covered it up again. There is still a little infill necessary, which I'll do after I get a few scrap pieces from the other floor work. Off to the floor around the chimney.
I started filling it with old flooring from the basement, which needs to go to make space for the walk-in cooler. These planks are oak, unlike the floor in the bar, which is pine, but this isn't a problem, as the different wood will will create a nice contrast.
