Remaking the First Floor
Today was a long day that changed the first floor dramatically. Yesturday we pulled down the old stairs. We have been using the old stairs as temporary work stairs. They did not meet code so we had new ones made. While the stairs where out we sanded down the floor. The result is that the downstairs is very close to finished now. We do not have treads in the stairs yet so we use a lader to get up and down. That is the next task, shoping for and buying new treads. The downstairs floor looks dramatically different. It was a long day of sanding (12 hours). The floor still has imperfections, but we expected that. The grain of the wood is very nice.
