It was determined that the baseboards had to come off, so that the wood flooring could be placed correctly.
I kept forgetting to take pictures. But, here is what it's looking like right now. I'm not sure what kind of wood it is. It was a gift from someone who did not know any history of the flooring. The planks are 8" wide, tongue in groove. The wood has been around for awhile, as there are some old newspapers affixed to the back of some of the planks, but no dates seen. It looks pretty sharp laid out, huh?
David earned a big gold star for his patience and skills this weekend. There will be cold beer in the house when he comes back to finish up!
Be sure to check out David's blog. He intends to have a random drawing at a random time in the random near future, maybe. He's an Aggie, ya know. Making up the rules as he goes! *smile* You'll want to follow him and give the man comments. He likes comments as much as we all do.
