Thursday, 10/27 – A Garage Door and a Sewing Room Floor

Not much time to post tonight — we need to clear the family room floor by 7 AM so the rug can be pulled up and the floors can be sanded. There weren’t a ton of things on the floor, but the type of thing presented difficulty: a computer and various things that went with it and the TV table with a lot of electronic equipment. I realized at the last minute I should probably clear out the craft cupboard, too, because it has a hardwood floor…there are things in there I haven’t seen in years!

The garage door was installed today in the new garage bay. It looks great. The other two garages look awful in comparison, but we will paint them when we can to make them look a bit better.

The sewing room floor has been installed. At one point the guy called me up to explain that he couldn’t run the boards the long way because that’s the way the joists were running. Apparently, people often want the boards the long way (and that’s the way it is in most of the house), but it looked good this way. Also, the sewing room is off the bedroom and the boards in that room run the same way. It would have been weird to step from one room to the other and have the boards change direction!

We have had rain today (and snow tonight) and I’m happy to say that the gutters are fantastic. Now I need to finish clearing that floor and packing to get out of here (away from the refinishing smell). I won’t be updating until Sunday now, probably.
