Floors!



Floors in a house as old as ours have interesting dips and rolls. The foot wide planks were not exactly lovely antiques. Originally over 1 inch thick they had worn to less than a quarter inch in some places. Wear, water, cats, everything had taken its toll. After building the pantry and doorway areas up to the same level as the rest of the kitchen, (well almost) They needed to know how much plywood they had. (They also needed to use the plywood scraps.) So they precut, did a dry fit, and gave me a minute alone to take these pictures. Then they pulled it out to start the next task. Friday we will start sanding drywall, do the second coat then go to his shop to deal with cabinets getting sanded, primed and painted. Or do some work here on the wood cabinets, the door being refinished, cleaning, who knows!
