Noggin hell

We spent the day today making and fixing noggins. I wasn't too aware of these little things before, but they hold the whole floor together, along with their friends the strongbacks and metal straps.
There is quite a lot of nailing involved too.
I was so engrossed in the task that I almost forgot to take any photos, but in case you ever need to know, these little bits of wood at the back are noggins.

The long piece of wood is a strongback that goes the whole length of the room,

and this is an example of the many nails that I hammered in today.

It will all be worth it when we move in and the floor doesn't creak, fingers crossed.
