Interior renovation works

February 2005: renovation of the three rooms with the installation of parquet, repair of the paintings and change of the frames and windows.

April 2005: Beginning of the development works by destroying the interior partitions, entrance, living room, dining room, kitchen, pantry, in total a single room of 50 m² for installation of a low temperature heating floor with low thickness on solar collectors.

removal of partitions

Clearly: total removal of the four radiators of 2000 watts each for heating.

Low temperature hydraulic floor heating

Once all the partitions were knocked down, we installed a heated floor. It is a heating floor of low thickness, special renovation of only 1,5 cm thick.

It is not necessary to cut the doors and the inertia is low.
