After the main portion of the renovation was finished certain parts of the new sections were only roughed in.
After the bathrooms were tiled, two areas of floor remain unfinished.
The larger area is the entire conservatory including the closet: 248 square feet.
This space is connected to the dining room and gets the same red oak hardwood flooring. We’re going to try to minimize a change in height between the two rooms.
The second area is upstairs adjacent to the master bedroom — the hall connecting the closet and master bathroom as well as the closet itself. This space is 139 square feet.
The bedroom wood is vintage pine so we must decide what type of wood to use there. New pine is soft and dissimilar to the vintage variety. Either we’ll use more red oak or look for salvaged pine.
This is the next major project which includes ordering the flooring, installing it, sanding it, and polyurethaning it. Some parts of the project will be DIY and perhaps other parts will be farmed out.
Who’s ready to start a new year of DIY?
