Shoulda, Coulda, WOODa

Happy New Year!

We've been off to a good start.

I've decided to take on some DIY work restoring some wood floors. In the art room/office, under the carpet is old vinyl and glue that I'm stripping off using a heat gun, after a lesson from the Pro.

I can appreciate all the hard work George did restoring the parlor floor all by himself. It's hard work but knee pads, patience, and face mask help.

George has nearly completed two projects already! First the front entry closet. He cleaned up and repaired the walls, then insulated and put up new drywall. I helped him strip the wood floor hiding under carpet in that closet, and now we're ready to paint the walls and put a little shine on the floor.

Then he was able to build the carriage doors for the garage! Today I helped paint the doors while he stained the wood trim. We couldn't be happier with the results! He will post a more detailed story about this project.
