Week 32:The name of the game this week was floors. The hardwood floors were sanded and then stained. Since it was a meticulous process, there wasn't any other inside work done. The upcoming week will bring the installation of the carpeting and then the finishing stages of the painting. The last stages for electrical and plumbing will wait another week rather than try to hurry to get it done. We decided that the move in date will be Martin Luther King Jr.'s holiday. We are starting to go through all the boxes of 10+ years of stuff in the garage. We do not want to have any unusable items stored away in the house anymore. We made good headway and have already donated a bunch of items to the Salvation Army. We will continue to do that until we have gone through everything at the house and the rental. The shower doors were installed and look great and Joe has finished up the balcony and created our temporary stairs. We are contemplating having the garage siding replaced sooner rather than later. There may be enough siding left over that it can be done and at a lower price since the supplies are here.
Here the guys are using a industrial strength sander to smooth out the floors. They are working on the guest bedroom.
