Did you notice our horrible floors when I posted the pictures of our back bedrooms?
We bought the flooring this spring from a 40's house in Missoula that was being remodeled. For $300 we brought home over 300 sq.ft. of narrow strip oak that is a close match to what we already have in the house. We've been storing it in the kitchen for months
Originally I had planned to use it in the kitchen, but I really just want to be finished with these bedrooms. I laid out a few test pieces to determine that it looked fine with my freshly painted walls
Once Luke and I had agreed that we would be installing floors over the weekend we started pricing flooring nailer rentals and quickly discovered that we could buy a nailer for the cost of renting one for 3.5 days. I bought one on Amazon and had it overnighted so we could start work right away. While we were waiting we laid the tar paper.
Despite running errands and getting a slow start we were able to lay the entire disco room on Saturday.
And the pee room on Sunday
The floor color is a little lighter than we prefer but since it is pre-finished we will probably leave it alone. In a few days my family will be here to help replace the roof so we've got to get the windows trimmed and put a door on the pee room.
