Floors Sanded & Finished

This week was a short week for me in Romney as the floor finishers arrived on Wednesday morning so I cleared out. I took some pictures of the prep work they were doing before I left. This shows the rooms after we'd cleaned them up and some of the sanding that was going on as we left. We've decided to have just a small amount of tint added to the poly being used to coat the oak floors that should help bring out the grain without introducing a lot of color or making the floor dark. We've spent a lot of time trying to keep the great room and kitchen area very light so didn't want to change it too much with the finish. We figure that we'll be able to add some color with rugs and other furnishings but one thing we saw in a lot of log homes was that they could quickly become very dark inside if too many dark stains were used. Will see when it's all done but so far, even on cloudy days, the rooms feel light and open.

For those who were interested in our paint and color choices, these pictures are a reasonable representation of the colors after they've been finished. All the paint was from Sherwin Williams, the colors are Evergreen, Burgundy, and Bonafide Beige. We still have some touch up work to do but it's largely complete. Next week, all the baseboard can be installed now that the floors and paint is done. Appliances are also scheduled to be delivered so we're in the home stretch it seems.
