House work '10

So a lot of people have been complaining about the lack of updates here so I'm trying to catch up a bit.

We're working in the "office". The old floor was very irregular (worn board, cupping etc.) so we used a drum sander to flatten things out.

This is what it looked like when we were done. The floor was all an off white color before we started.

Here's the new floor all laid. It's tongue and groove oak, random width. We had to get a little creative to make it all work out due to the room not being perfectly square but a friend helped us lay it out and it worked out to less then 3/4" off when we got to the walls.

Here it is finished. We chose Minwax "Natural", it's not to dark and makes the grain pop out.

Baseboard! These pictures are from today. Dad and I put some down yesterday and did a bit more today. We need to install a rail by the stairwell but besides that this room is very close to being done.

This is the bath room with it's new tile floor and doors. It's a hard room to get a decent picture in. A small closet still needs the shelves installed and a door built. I'm building a vanity (slowly but surely), it's getting close as well.

BJ's been busy too although she won't tell me what she's been up to...
