Mara pulling out all the staples they used to attach the carpet pad to the floor.
Here we go! The old polyurethane came up easily and revealed a BEAUTIFUL white oak floor.
The newly painted and sanded office!
Spencer happily varnishing the office floor! We used an oil/wax varnish on our floors - all made with plant-based oils and waxes. This was recommended for our floors to harden and protect them. It soaks in and leaves a matte finish, which we love. They will harden over the next 3 weeks, and then we will buff them with a gel wax. We can't believe what a huge difference this has made to how the house looks!
Here's the office now being lived in - we're slowly unpacking.
The finished bedroom! We're having fun shopping for rugs and furniture. Mr. Smeems certainly feels at home!
We applied for a permit to start building our deck, and install a patio door - should begin in mid-late June. If you're in the area in July, come on over for a BBQ! More pics as we get the other rooms finished. Happy warm weather, everyone!
