The room was originaly designed as a third bedroom but now plans have changed and it is now an office/study. So for the floor...? Instead of buying screed which is quite expensive we decided to create a floor on 2 levels, this not only breaks up the room but creates a feature a kind of platform.
To do this we laid the floor tiles nearest the door first and then placed bricks to create the step, behind the line of bricks we backfilled the space with around 4" of cement, when the cement dried we removed the bricks and were left with our raised floor. This was tiled and front of the step smooth yeso,d and painted.
waiting for adhesive to dry.....
Total cost €60.00 the tiles were €4.40 per pack (m2) 2 bags of cola/adhesive and 1 sack of cement, total time over 2 days around 5 hours.
