Bedroom Stained

09 Aug

A* started the sanding..and finished it while I worked on the door frame cut to allow for the incoming flooring.


It was a rare moment in the shot where the sun was out. Once the boards were all sanded with the edges sanded off too so it is smooth (nobody likes catching a toe on a sharp board) we moved the boards in..some final adjustments to line up where the doorway meets the room and I was onto nailing. With the joists all marked clearly the boards went in and were nailed in an hour..another 10 minutes countersinking the boards and we were ready for stain. Exciting! It is a little anti-climactic..the actual install with the method we choose to use takes around 2 hours if the wood is all ready..but the processing time per room is much longer.



And the stain goes on..we think we only did 1 coat in the bedroom. We are doing 2 coats of stain in this room.

    Sharp looking floors! I really like the variations in width that come with home-milled boards.

    I know you’re keeping things on the down low, but Christy and I have been trying to figure out where you live. My guess is somewhere on the east coast of Canada….

      Think a little closer to further in off the atlantic then veer left..hehe. was it the concert shot that gave you that idea?

      The floor does look great. The weather he has been bad and it figures since I took the whole week off to do the floors..we begin planing again tomorrow.
