Outbuilding is floored

A few weeks ago I told you about the outbuilding in our garden. And I showed you pictures of the building-up (here) and the thatched roof (here).

Yesterday my husband was finishing the floor!
What do you think about it?


The bluestone floor.

This was the start in June this year.

Flooring (first week of September).

Flooring (second week of September).

Last Friday.



And after the waterworks and electricity placement, I can start to decorate!

Have a nice Sunday!

    what a nice outbuilding, sadly i will not have one directly :-), i live on the third floor of a mansion on the boulevard that pass through the center of brussels. But dreaming is aloud and it's for free even if we don't have the room for it 🙂

    thanks for charing!!!!

    ps: my mother love it 🙂

    What a beautiful setting for outdoor entertaining….and relaxing. I can also picture a couple of comfy chairs and garden stools to prop your feet up and read a book. Then top it off with a work of art!

    What a beautiful outdoor room! Too bad fall and winter are on your doorstep. But, you will have all winter to design and find all the furniture and accessories to create the perfect setting for your outdoor entaining area. Please keep us posted with the progress.

    Greet, I love the bluestone, it is such a beautiful stone. I still want it in my kitchen, I know from a former post of yours that it is used indoors. Your outbuilding is truly gorgeous and when you have finished decorating it, it will be so comfortable and useful. The kitchen designer guy came and I did as you suggested, I listened and learned a few things. He had some very creative ideas that I think will work, once we save up the money, of course. Hugs, Cindy S.

    Greet, dit is magnifiek. Wat kan jouw man een boel zeg. Hij heeft rust verdiend voor zijn rug en armen en handen en een lekker glas Trappist en een hele lieve vrouw ! Door de prachtige post op je blog laat jij zien hoe dankbaar je bent en hoe je dit waardeert. Het is prachtig.
    Lieve groet, fijne week

    That stone is gorgeous! It looks like it was a lot of hard work getting it laid, but you will have so many years of reward in exchange. I can't wait to see what you do with the decorations!

    i love the Belgian blue stone ! And oh my goodness to dine in that fabulous room with it's great long wooden table. I can almost hear the delightful conversations and laughter of friends and family, the clinking of glasses, beautiful candlelight and music (most likely Schubert or Chopin) playing softly in the background. As always Greet, your taste is divine.

    I absolutely adore the Belgian bluestone. It's the perfect flooring for your outbuilding 🙂

    I can't wait to see it decorated!!

    Thanks for visiting my 9/11 post. Being at the Swissair flight 111 memorial site on Friday gave me chills too. It's hard to describe in words, but I think the pictures say it all…

    Perfection, Greet.
    What type of wood is it made out of? I will have to look at your past posts to see if you mentioned that.
    Also, how will it be lit? I like those modern pendants in the second to last image.
