The floors are finished!

This morning I was off early to the house to put the 3rd coat of varathane onto the hardwood floors. Kristina and Judy prepared a nice lunch for us all after I finished up, and then turned around and headed back to the house to put the 4th coat on! That is it! Finished, done, complete! Floors are good!

There is quite a difference from where we started. These floors were left neglected for many years before Chris and Kristina bought this home, and as you can see, quite a transformation has taken place. It took quite a bit of work from Chris and myself, but it was worth it! The new finish should provide many years of good finish and enjoyment for the family!

Looking at these pictures, I find it hard to believe myself the transformation that has occured. Goes to show you what a bit of effort can do for you!

Now you would think, alright, lets put the furniture back and call it a day! No way! While we have the house empty, we are going to paint the living room, and some stairs! The floors still need about 3 days of drying time to fully cure. Nothing better than standing around watching paint dry.... right?

Too cold outside here to do anything else anyways!
