I've just scored enough original 1930s parquet flooring blocks to do my whole bedroom for fifty quid! That includes what I estimate it will cost in petrol to collect them.

This is they before they were lifted.

A good sand and a few coats of varnish and they'll look the business!

Does this mean your bedroom floor will be a few inches higher than the rest of the floors?

Or are you going to sink the floorboards?

The floor will indeed be a little higher... But not to worry because I will be sourcing more of these and doing the entire flat.

If it's a 1930s school assembly hall... yes. But you're falling into the "my only experience of this is..." trap.
