The finished project......
(The Before floors....this is dining area and living area with stairs going to finished walkout basement... we have an open floor plan......piles of wood waiting to be installed)
Oh YES!! We FINALLY got our hardwood floors completed.....it only took 5 years but they are done and I love them! You see, we have been remodeling our house for the better part of 8 years now. We have been living "under construction" for quite some time. We have had just plywood down for years......And now with the floors finally done, it makes me feel like I actually live in a house again! My last 2 projects left to do on the house is the kitchen (which will probably be another 5 years) and the masterbath shower. (I must show you the masterbath vanity....that finally got finished as well!) But first the Flooring project.......
We started out with buying recycled barn beams made of red oak wood. The beams came off of a 100 yr old barn from Pennsylvania. There is a company here in our small town that does this. They get the old barn beams and bring them back to the sawmill and cut them into floorboards.
Here is when we were halfway done putting down the wood.
(Here's my little Molly-cat wondering what the heck is going on. The wood floor is butted up against my kitchen floor tile...she is sitting where the table goes)
(Libby, my golden retriever, happily enjoying all the activity)
And TA -DAH! Finally sanded and finished!!
Once we get it all together with furniture I will post some more pictures.
We have been working on a few more major projects so I'll blog about that soon.... Things are always chaios in our house!
