I recounted here what an ordeal we had trying to get new floors laid in our house.
We finally settled upon someone who offered to lay roughly 350 square feet of red oak flooring for $750.
He and his colleague showed up the next morning and installed flooring in both the conservatory on the first floor and the master bedroom hall and closet on the second floor.
Man Number 1 worked on the conservatory floor starting at the opening into the dining room.
He dry-fitted a number of boards then went through and nailed them in.
The new double-door closet was included.
The conservatory is my favorite room in the house especially with the new flooring.
Meanwhile Man Number 2 worked upstairs beginning at the wide opening between the bedroom and the hallway. (So both installers started at the old floors and worked their way away from them.)
He set up his miter saw right outside the bedroom on our private porch. Charlie said he was happy not to have to run up and down stairs on a very hot day.
He finished up in the closet.
All the doorways still need reducing thresholds, sanding (scraping), and polyurethaning. This is planned for next week.
If you had a big empty room what kind of party would you throw?
