Almost Done!

Almost done with the floors, that is. :) The hardwoods need to be sanded over the two coats of poly to give it a buffed finish and then the final coat of poly will be applied. The concrete is setting overnight after being touched up today and will be stained tomorrow with color! We can't wait to see how it all turns out!

You can see the grittiness on top of the grain from the poly. That will be buffed out.

In other exciting news, we move our stuff in on Saturday! Now that the floors and walls are finished we've asked some friends to help us move our stuff in on Saturday morning so we can take the holidays to set up house. Our bodies will remain at the in-laws down the street until we can get a working kitchen and all the saftey hazards taken care of. We're hoping that will take a matter of weeks and not months though!


  1. this is totally exciting and it's not even my move.....things are looking great!!!! ramona

  2. Things are really moving along! Kudos to you and your hubby (and your helpful family and friends) for such an amazing job thus far. I am new to the Land of Blog but have been watching your progress as we make our own on our 1880s Victorian Farm house.
    Merry Christmas!

  3. The wood floors turned out GORGEOUS!!! Hope the "snow" doesn't hamper the move.

  4. Wow Nat! It's looking awesome! I love your choice to do concrete. When it's colored it will look so so good!
