Floor update

March 18, 2009

So, as always, things are taking a little bit longer than expected.  However, D’Arcy does have the rough sanding done on both rooms.  He’ll have to work on the edges more tomorrow, and I’m not sure when we’ll start varnishing.  Here are a few photos of the progress so far:

    Wow!!! They’ll look awesome when you’re done! It sure brings back memories – we refinished the floors in the house we owned in Ottawa. I seem to recall the edges being particularly difficult!
