Chad at Chad’s Crooked House is having his vintage floors refinished which got me thinking about our unfinished floors.
We have areas in the new additions that still need wood flooring.
Before laying the wood floors we are waiting for the bathrooms to be tiled so we can make as seamless a transition as possible between the old parts of the house and the new.
Our downstairs floors are red oak. The kitchen and mud room have already been finished with red oak.
I suppose we’ll use the same flooring in the conservatory which connects to the dining room.
I’m sure I still have the paperwork which describes exactly the material used in the kitchen.
On the other hand, upstairs we only need to cover the master bedroom hall and the closet.
Our original upstairs floors are pine as is the custom in old houses to put better quality material in the public rooms.
With the help of a friend Charlie and I are planning to lay these new floors ourselves. Perhaps we’ll begin upstairs to improve our skills.
