I'm Floored

I know I've been talking about this remodel project for a LOOOOONNNGGG time but it's still going on.

My husband has been making his own new floorboards out of old wood to create tongue and groove flooring. He used the boards he took out of the walls when he raised the roof.

It's a messy job and he's been working hard to make sure each piece fits just perfectly.

Now, he's working on installing the boards.

It's hard work - especially on his knees. So, he's using my gardening pad to keep his knees from wearing out.

You can see the white one and the half-yellow one. My hubby is such a sustainable fellow, he finds ways to use objects in new and useful ways and you can see that he's making progress. He's even adding venting so the room won't be so hot in the summer and cold in the winter.

Now we're almost ready to paint the walls, refinish the floors and move in.

Very exciting. And no, you don't talk about it to too much. I like seeing the progress. It's fun stuff.

I agree with the Happy Whisk, I don't think you talk about this project too much. I'm enjoying the updates and am looking forward to seeing the finished room.

That looks like a lot of hard work, but I'm sure you will all love it when it's done.

Your family is so handy and multi-talented!
