The Living Room Floor

Jennifer tacks the felt down. We chose felt over paper for because we think it keeps the noise down.

Jennifer asked if we could do it diagonally; I hemmed and hawed and finally said, "what the hey."

Jennifer whacking the flooring nailer. Her shoes are called "Chacos" by the way. She loves them.

Using a basher block and hammer to set a new board.

Looking back at what's done

Looking at what's left to be done.

We had a rainbow today.
We'll finish the floor tomorrow. We were going to go to the beach, but I think we gotta put that aside. Even if we go for an hour, it's a five-hour excursion, easily (1.5 to 2 hour drive to Long Beach, NY).

What kind of wood is that? The grain is really striking!

That's bamboo - Morningstar is the brand, and strand tiger is the design or pattern. It is strand bamboo, meaning the bamboo is retted and pressed into planks. It is a little harder than most.
