Finishing the Floor
Finally getting to the floor, I have been finishing things from the top down, ceiling, walls, windows and now the floor. It was donated by Stan Fowler, former park ranger at Glen Echo here in DC. Old oak of different origins and conditions. Some of it sat outside , somewhat exposed to the elements. A lot of the boards were beyond recovery but most were still good. They sanded down with a fair amount of work. I think I hauled away two full wheelbarrow loads of sawdust. Next step will be to give the floor a coat of linseed oil.
