Yes.. the square area with the trailer is going to be astroturf :)

We'll have a sizeable seating area on the patio and path up to the workshop

3 days of laying.. 26 square meters of porcelain slabs. They're bloody hard but bloody brittle (tmi)

Got some grouting to do in the week and then it's onto astroturf (hopefully this week) and cladding (arriving Thursday) as far as the rest of the exterior goes.

For the interior we need to finish the worktops and cupboards then move everything out of our dining room back into the workshop

They look very shiny. What's the wet grip like?

I'd just hosed them clean.

They're R11 rated (which means something) and wet grip isnt too bad actually. My shoe kind of suctions on as I walked across them. The tiles have are very flat but have a surface texture to them
