    Hi

    Just to confirm I am DIY novice.

    I've had an internal wall removed that was load bearing chimney Wall. Now that's been removed there is a gap in floor between the kitchen and dining room. Which will be a kitchen/dinner.

    Kitchen is old and tiles and then dining room is floor boards. How do I first fill the gap? And how do I then roughly level the floor . Flooring going down Is going to be a wood floor.

    It looks like the floor boards are slightly higher than the old tiled floor. But the floor boards around the old chimney seem to be slightly elevated.

    I've attached current pics and then a layout of how it will look and where kitchen units will be .

    Any advice welcome

    Thanks in advance
