The ceilings are stripped and the joists are exposed. The joists are not in bad condition considering how old they are. We have put propping in place to support the existing timber beam which was put in place in approx. 1750. An old beam!. We are casting padstones on either side of the room. You can see one padstone already being formed. A PFC will go on either of the existing timber beam to support the floor above.
