I, with the help of my determined wife, have installed my first floor. It is solid oak. We got most of the wood from several sources off of Craigslist. Really the only down time we had in this 5-week project was either Rubio Monocoat drying time (which is currently taking place) or wood acclimation which takes days. Blood, sweat and tears? Yes, yes and yes. Yes, that’s why I aint been round here in the last month. It was about 400 sf. also. ! It looks beautiful, though. In the pics you can see the finished floor, me in the very process of finishing the floor, my wife enjoying a brew with hammer in hand, day 2 of installing the floor and somehow my incredibly precious dog, Kea (Kay-uh) crept into the scene here. Hmmmmmm. Either that or I am showing her off. Hmmmm, could be the latter.
No flooring was hurt in the construction of this floor. Ok, yes, yes it was hurt. Do you think getting 2 1/2 ” flooring nails sunk deep into you feels good?
