Sorry i should clarify, that price was just the raw timber.
Add the price of the glue on top. Then my dad and i put it in ourselves.

I think the biggest problem is people automatically assume timber is expensive and don't even look at what is available. Before i chose my timber floors i was looking at…

I am not sure why people get laminate.
Laminate will eventually need to be replaced whereas timber floors will last a lifetime and can be sanded and repolished if need be.

I'm not very good at expressing myself and i feel i am failing at trying to explain my reasoning to you so i apologise for that.
I'm probably repeating myself…

Yes but it's a professional's job to peel those layers away and they have techniques to do so. Think of it like an onion, you have to peel away so…

Thanks SuH :)
I also deal with anxiety and know how paralysing it can be so i hope all is going well for you!

Yep when you get a psych you click with it is an amazing relationship.

No need to apologise. I didn't think you were having a go.

Yeah absolutely, i am not implying there is something more sinister going on.
But if moving out is not an option then what other choice does she have?

To be honest and blunt i think you are doing to much assuming in regards to how a professional can help you. Like you said you are a bit of…

If you are scared you might have a meltdown, then it's more likely to happen if gone untreated!

Don't apologise, it's good to get these things off your chest. If people don't want to listen to you then they can just not read.

Hey presto, beautful, shiny floors. None of this laminate rubbish! …
