Hi, I am currently renovating an old barn, and the architect has told me to put in a concrete floor for my first floor level as this helps tie the building together. However i would prefer traditional oak beams with a wooden floor on top. What are the benefits to doing in concrete or wood?......Surely the wooden beams will help tie the building together also....
If you are building a complete new masonry structure inside the existing then a concrete floor would be sensible. If the internal structure is timber I would go with your thoughts and use wood.
