Bought some oak tongue and groove floorboards for the living room. I thought when I got them they would be perhaps 4 different widths and I'd just separate them and it would be fairly simple to lay. But they were all different widths.
I layed them all out, groove down with the tongue in the air on a flat surface and sorted them in descending order, then it was just a question of picking the 2 closest pairs and laying them together, it was slightly more complicated than it would have been had they been the same widths but it looks gorgeous.

Moved a bloody big stone in the ruin too, because once I've cleared the rubble underneath it I'd never be able to get it back up there on my own.
Put a temporary work surface in the kitchen too to house an old sink a neighbour kindly gave me.

 This is how long it took
