Flooring Begins Anew

28 Jul

..still to rainy to cut and plane the wood outside so I located the joists and we marked the floor to make nailing of the new flooring easier. We also had a number of smaller pieces cut and ready to go from last fall so I placed some of them and fine tuned the cuts to the floor markings. We are going for a rustic look..especially since we don’t have the equipment, time or the inclination to do a professional job. It has been 7 months (wowie) since we finished the bedroom and the floor and finish have stood up really well. There are some claw indentations in the finish of the floor but I think they add to the softwood floors rustic this point anyway. I am really antsy to get started on that wood for the rest of the place but I am REALLY antsy just to have all that flooring done and out of my yard in the raw form.

    I’m starting to feel antsy myself. The problem with buying raw materials is that then they sit there and fester… always in my way or reminding me that I need to do something with them. Thorn in my side!

    I like the simplicity and look of the floor. There’s just something about wood.
