Preparation for floor laying in the log house

In order to reduce the risk of the solid oak floor warping after laying due to the under floor heating system, you need to “acclimatise” the wood before laying.

Then about 2 days before you are going to lay the floor you need to switch the underfloor heating off, and then turn it back on slowly  (over two weeks or so) after the floor is installed.
