you are making some good progress there...one piece at a time :cool:
Living room paper stripped during the week too so I'd imagine start painting the ceiling tomorrow, dreading putting new paper and paint up as the rooms massive lol.
Builder put new concrete window sill on the front too as the rebar was rotten and sill was cracked to fuck.
Bathroom extension next.......

Yea bud, multiple layers of paint so have to peel all that off 1st then soak the backing. Normally a cunt of a job but ive got a rather vicious scraper that just peels layers away, uses the long Stanley blades so you get a good strip each time. Rooms 7.5M x 3.5M so it took a while lmfao.
I've got a proper steamer for paper but it's useless on painted paper, works well on printed or patterned paper tho
 
we don't really use wall paper over here...mostly painted wood and painted or stucco/plastered concrete walls.

so i don't have much knowledge about applying/removing it....hopefully your tools speed up the process for you

Caldina makes a good work horse :) 15 packs of laminate flooring, more underlay than you could shake a stick at and bales off woodchips for the hogs, she was low lol.
 
do the laminated floor strips "tie/clip" into each other?
and do they go directly unto to the concrete floor or is there a padding/material/glue to be used between the floor and the laminated strips?
how durable do the strips look in your opinion?

just asking some questions as they seems like a viable option versus traditional ceramic/porcelain tiles

Yea bud they clip/lock together. Some brands say use glue some don't, I never had and I've layed a fair few lol. There's an underlay which is just 5mm foam, helps on the concrete floors to keep heat in aswell. That's the green stuff sat on top.
Buy a half decent thick floor to start with, 30£ a pack that was but will last for years and years.
We where in our old house 19 years and I only changed the floor in the living room about 3 years ago lol
 
thanks for the feedback...i will keep this in mind whenever my floor renovations may arise,,,they seem to tick all the boxes for someone like me :)

i've grown tired of the digging/repaving/dust/cost when replacing blown ceramic tiles.
