Wood Floors

The flooring company was here this week and the wood floors are complete. The floors are solid, 3/4" red oak in random widths of 3", 4", 5", and 6". Looks great and was completed in only two days. The wood floor is used in the great room, dining room, hall, office, and master bedroom.

The floors are to be sanded and finished on site but this won't be done for a week or so. The floors will be stained before the top coats are put on to darken them a bit and to help bring out the grain. There are a number of knots and imperfections in the floor which we like but the installers made sure that all the knots were tight and wouldn't come apart as they were working. The loft and upstairs bedroom floors will also be sanded and finished on site by the same team from Tripp Flooring.

Pictures show the flooring ready for installation and a couple of shots as the work progressed. You can also see where the kitchen and great room floors come together. There are a number of floor outlets in the great room area including two near the stairs that will be used for our aquarium.
