The timber floors are stained Baltic Pine boards. some of the areas are the existing boards and others were made good. Then prepared and sanded and stained them.

I hope this helps

Tell your neighboursIf you’re in a terraced or semi-detached property, you’ll probably be subject to something called the Party Wall Act, which is entirely separate from both Planning Permission and Building Regulations. It’s to do with any works that will affect the party (shared) wall. ‘If you’re removing any main walls that have a structural loading in a terraced or semi-detached property, you’ll need to obtain party wall agreement with either or both of your neighbours,’ explains Robert.‘It’s a relatively simple process that can be carried out directly by the homeowner, as long as they adhere to the guidelines specified on the government website,’ he adds. ‘You would need to send a party wall notice to your neighbours, give them a chance to respond to the works you intend to carry out and, if necessary, appoint their own surveyor. For more complex party wall issues, I would recommend appointing a party wall surveyor to deal with this on your behalf.’ ‘It’s good to remember that nobody can stop you as long as what you are doing is within regulations,’ says Hugo, ‘but they can cause delay. The best way to go about it is to deal with it professionally and it’s likely your neighbours will make the party wall process very easy for you.’

Don’t be afraid of structureOne phrase I’ve heard too many times is: “Oh I couldn’t move that wall, it’s load-bearing and would cost a fortune.”The cost implications of removing any wall in a house, load-bearing or otherwise, are most often in the moving of services (radiators, power points and light switches) and the making good of floors, walls and ceiling, plastering and redecoration. The fact that a structural wall might also need a piece of steel is often only a fairly marginal difference. So free up your thinking, consider any wall as fair game and if it makes for better space, it will more often than not be well worth it.

Exact same hallway view as ours

Like the way the stairs have been restored & the way the rooms have continuity despite the compartmentalised nature of the rooms.
