So I phoned my loss adjuster, to discover that he was on holiday until Monday. So I phoned head office and got passed on to their replacement. Who ummed, erred and then told me to go for it.
So I phoned the damp experts back, and they told me that because of the way that my flooring is laid (from the window towards the door), and because it's clipped together, if they were going to get to the final joists they were going to have to take up _all_ of the flooring. Which means clearing everything off of it.
The problem being - there's absolutely nowhere to put it. The bed has about a foot on three sides, and touches the wall on the fourth. The living room is already packed full and covered in dustsheets. That leaves the kitchen and the bathroom.
Which is why we're about to take the movable contents of the study, and fill the kitchen end to end. And then hope that they get the flooring taken up, sorted, and put back down by tomorrow night, so that we can get back into the kitchen again. Because we don't fancy takeout for _every_ meal until Monday.
It's a joy, it really is.
