|Before, During and After!|
Downstairs, we have maple floors in the living room and dining room. The first challenge was figuring out how to fill the big gaps that were created when we removed walls. This flush threshold works really well.
|New kitchen floor!!|
The kitchen only had rough sawn boards (which Richard promptly fell through, early in the demo phase) under the vinyl floor. The guys installed new maple hardwood, to have cohesive flooring throughout the open first floor.
I was worried that they wouldn't blend well, but while the 80 year old floors look a little different, they blend together nicely!
|Sanding away the old finish|
And while we're excited about getting this major task behind us, we still have a lot more to do. Next up - finishing up the electrical. I can't wait for you to see the new light fixtures!
