It looks like we’re starting to finish our renovations again. Last year we began finishing our renovation work .. the renovations that we’d started several years ago in our living room, dining room and well .. all over the house. Unfortunately several things happened and we ended up taking a long long break from completing the job and our house didn’t look so great for quite a while, but now we’re back on the job.
Yesterday my husband finished fixing an area of our hardwood floor at the end of the stairs that had needed repair for quite a while. Did you know that old hardwood floors had tar paper underneath them? We didn’t either until we replaced part of the floor and found that it seemed lower and saggier in that area than it didn’t in the rest of the room and that’s when we realized the paper that he’d pulled out when he took out the old floor boards had been important and started researching how they used to put in flooring in the 1920’s. The floor is in good shape now, but sometime in the not too distant future I think I’ll be putting in a new floor.
Chris has two more days off work this week so I expect that we’ll be doing a lot more reno work. I know we need to get some supplies and I think a replacement part – something called malleable iron handle nuts for an old piece of equipment.
Some day we’ll have all of our reno work done and I’ll get to truly enjoy this house.
