Well, by finished, of course, I mean un-finished. I need to put a few coats of varnish on it now. But it’s complete; the first complete floor in the house.
It’s lovely Canadian maple, originally laid as a gym floor in the 60s somewhere locally (I forget where exactly) and has cleaned up to look absolutely lovely.
My back is killing me, but once I figured out that drilling a quick pilot hole made the nailing A LOT easier, it went pretty fast. Davey laid half of it and I just did the rest in a marathon session.
I suppose I should go put some varnish on it now.
