We never did like the kitchen floor tiles they were done properly and always looked like the floor was not prepared properly for the type of tiles going down on the floor. As they settled and stuck properly you could see the floor boards underneith.
The long slow sticky process of scrapping tiles up
Xaria and one end Nighthawk at the other, I'll meet you in the middle. You can see the floor boards through the tiles clearly in this photo.

So far so good.
Bugger..taking off the last few tiles we find bog... this means instead of plan A which was varnishing the floor we are now switching to plan B, which is laminated wood like tiles. Well there was only one way to find out and now we know.
Doing jobs like this, alway and I mean always have a back up plan if for some reason you can't do your orginal at least you have a backup idea. Hope for the best prepare for the worst.
So instead of varishing these floors we will now buy some liminated wood tiles and lay them. Over it it is going to cost about the same. But we still have to do the preperation on sanding back the floor and getting the boards pretty even. This way there will be less problems when we come to lay the new tiles.
