Looks good. Which floor tiles did you go for? They look smaller than Duramat.
They are from http://www.plasfloor.co.uk/ 4.5mm thick vinyl 200x200 which makes them a little more usable than the larger tiles if you want to do a design, box of 25 (1sqm) is £14.99, there is a handy online calculator so you can try out your options before you buy. Easy and quick to put together, I laid about 320 in about 3hrs the cuts on the other hand took about 5hrs :roll:

If you just did it would she notice :lol:

Oh, yes, first the bank account, then the floor . . . I called her "gormless" the other day and we are still at daggers drawn.
But, given the lockdown, we are rubbing along quite well. We just love to bicker!

Great job, Adrian,
Been thinking about flooring the garage for years but keep hitting the same problem: Mrs Thommo!
She thinks it's a waste of time and money, will hold dust. etc, etc.
I have pointed out that as the door from the recently renewed kitchen opens straight out into the garage new flooring would enhance the whole household experience.I'll keep trying . . .
Tell her it will enhance the value of the house Steve.

Far less dust with tiles and spoils the whole new kitchen experience ;)
