Postcard of the day, February 25, 2012

Here’s a condensed visual of the process of installing wood flooring: Acclimate the wood in or near the room you’ll be installing it in for two weeks; Ready the Subfloor – make sure materials match the manufacturer’s warranty/recommendations; Pre-sort – especially with reclaimed and random width flooring, get a feel for how it will look, what-you’ll-want-where before nailing anything down; Finish – tung oil is a favorite, but there are some nice water based polyurethanes out there that do a nice job too. Enjoy for decades!
