Boy oh boy…. like the upstairs drywall, we managed to find another project that never ends, the wood floor. Lessons learned thus far:
- Relaimed wood, while eco friendly, is dumb!! Luckily Oak has mastered the art of re-adding the tongues and grooves… so our waste level is still pretty low. But, that has definitely added a lot of time to this whole process.
- Wear gloves when you’re sorting wood, otherwise you end up with raw hands and splinters.
- A quality pair of pliers, awesome for removing staples!
- Using the flooring nailer is a great man-workout! haha
- Patience is virtue.
