Dad and mom have been working their hineys off on the chestnut floor in the guestroom! This floor has been an incredible amount of work with planing the boards and edging them and tongue and grooving them and finally laying them meticulously one at a time. Some of these board are over 100 years old and they all had to be treated on the back side just in case there was a lingering buggie or wood worm inside the board!
Mom and dad are 90% done laying the floor! The next step is to take the radiator out and finish up but it's been cold here and taking the heat out of the room is not too appealing to either one of them! This is the floor that's been laid so far - this is the natural color of the wood!
See you all next Wednesday!
