Hardwood and Headaches

Well, this has been one of “those” home improvement projects.  You know, the ones where you think there’s a curse involved?  We’ve had snow storm delays, installation issues, and best of all ran out of wood before the job was complete despite ordering enough for a significant amount of waste.  Of course sleeping downstairs in the middle of non-stop clutter probably does not improve my outlook.

On the bright side the floor is going to be really beautiful.  The wood is from oak trees cut and milled locally in 4, 5, and 6 inch widths and was about the same price it would have cost us for strip.  The first sanding pass was finished today, second pass tomorrow, and then a few days finishing and barring anymore unforeseen obstacles (and yes I’m knocking on every piece of wood in sight), we should be able to put everything back together this weekend.  Here are a few photos from today.
