We started putting down the wood flooring down in our room today. It took a lot of prep work to get the planks ready to go down. Al removed all of the old rusty nails from the planks and we scrubbed down all of the planks then waited for them to dry out. We are doing the floors the old-fashioned way-hammers and nails-since we don't have the type of nailer used for flooring. But we are enjoying the process and envisioning the finished product. It's very satisfying to get a major project going since it has been a while since we have done anything to our house.
This is what we have done so far and still have much more to put down. It will be so worth it when it's all down, sanded, and finished!
