Lucas’s Wood Floor – installed!

We worked like mad to get the wood floor installed by Sunday morning. Jean and I rented a massive orbital sander on Saturday and began sanding on Sunday after we finished putting down the boards. We got most of the way through the job by night-fall. I listened to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on my iPod, a nice diversion from the mundane task at hand.
This week, Jean and her father took a lot of poplar and routed base board and window sill and jamb material for the room. We still need to sand some edges down, and then a final run with the sander, but then we’ll be able to stain and/or varnish. We still haven’t decided if we’re going to stick with the natural color…
