Shiny, Happy Floors (and People)


AB Bogdan Flooring came in and put down the red oak flooring. Very nice. It has a double-band mahogany border, and 'Ipswich pine' stain.


After some tile work, the doors and trim are up next.

Strip Club, off Highway..

The crew (Eric, Stewart, and now Ken) pulled out the old doors, door jambs, and trim that have been in the garage all winter for stripping. We're keeping the four 84" tall doors (standard door is 80" now), all of which are pine. They'll be used at the entrance and 1st floor bedroom and bathroom. Eric has them pulling the old lacquer off with Citristrip rather than a nasty paint stripper (if you've ever smelt paint stripper, don't!)
