I have recently moved into a house that was built in the 1880, the lounge flooring is typical dwaf wall and joist construction.
The kitchen is not, it is brick floor, laid on soil with a sand screed (25mm) (is that typical of that period) of which was covered in floor tiles backed with bitchemen. I would like to remove this as it is not damp and not level with the lounge floor construction.
I have dug down one side and found that there a dwaf wall does not exist. Is it possible to build new dwaf walls and lay joist of would it be better to lay new concrete down and batern out for floor boards???
