Concrete floor 1 st floor

Continuation of work on floors 1 floor started with leveling floors, it was not very smooth and not suitable for direct laying on her plate insulation (Styrofoam XPS), armed with a bag of plaster, plaster beacons, water, trowel, level, I began to prepare for to the leveling screed, are mixed solution, lined on its "blotch" beacons. Since excess solution I did not want to interfere chose lighthouses 6 mm high, so will tie the order of 8 to 25 mm, which is fine with me.
