I've reached a dilemma with our opened up living/dining room, and feel stuck with what to do.
We're about to relay all the floorboards, replace some joists in the living room and sand the floor, but have an issue with the constructional hearth in the dining room, which unfortunately has had all the orginal tiles smashed and looks quiet ugly.
Options I'm considering are:
1. To remove all the damaged tiles, chissel off a layer of the concrete over the rest of the heath and retile, so the new tiles are level with the floorboards.
2. remove the old hearth (since it won't be used), extend the joist into the fireplace and lay new floorboards.
