Floor covering and progress..

Build day 80
Yesterday morning Joe and I went into Kidderminster to select the taps for the galley and the showeroom as well as to find and order floor coverings for Yarwood.

We have opted not to have solid wood floor covering, lovely as it is, in this boat.   We have chosen a tough, 15 year guaranteed, vinyl for the shower room and galley.   The reasons for that choice is that it is waterproof, it is non slip, it is warm to walk on and it is quiet to walk on, especially if you have four paws with claws attached!!
 In the saloon we are fitting tough velour type carpet tiles; once again experience tells us that these type of carpet tiles are so easy to live with.  They are as tough as old boots, they are versatile, waterproof and practical, e.g. you can lift one if necessary and hose it down outside, dry it on the boat roof and put it back, job done.

The shopping done we then went to see the progress on Yarwood and deliver the new taps.

Richard had progressed the 'fitted furniture' in the back cabin.  The bed'ole is taking shape and Richard was beginning to construct the table cupboard that traditionally sits alongside.

Top step in place

The drawer carcases  that will fit into the steps -  all on soft-close runners

And the newly arrived little addition for the back cabin, the Faversham stove, arrhh, cute or what?
