Hiya ive just got my 1960's dandy and the flooring near the front door is a bit rotton and needs replacing, trying to avoid ripping out side and back cupboards as its only near the front, any ideas going to use marine ply, thinking of just cutting a section out up to the side cupboard and then screwing into the chassis but worried about stability near the cupboard and how to sort that out ? any ideas on whats best to do with the floor

I think that looks passable as it is! -why not flood the floor with 5 star preservative, then follow up with some wood hardener? www.google.co.uk/webhp?sourceid=chrome-i...%20hardener%20review that is what I intend to do with my floor "Oriented Strand Board " then - as I intend to put "oak board patterned vinyl " as a finished practical floor covering - to smooth the existing floor out -I will place some (varnished both sides )thin ply on top of the existing OSB- fix every 5 inches or so ( staple) then the vinyl flooring I might even pop some insulation foil in between the floor layer. I will certainly squirt some mastic sealer where the few dark stains and fresh air came through . Only problem will be the bottom cupboard drop down doors binding -but I reckon if I shave a bit off or have them opening sideways it will be sorted -I will re evaluate this as the job progress.

Can anyone tell me how Riva fixed the bench frames was it screws? possi? the carpet is well trapped under the frames, but it must be loosened for a tidy job. all the best.

Maria, have you thought of ringing Ian at Dandy?
I know they renovate and you might think they won't want to help with a DIY job but no harm in asking.
Just email them your query and hopefully they'll get back to you.
Actually it might be quicker to ring, they do take a while to answer emails
