First Coat - by Holly

The upstairs (and stairs) received the first coat of poly! The original floors look so amazing--so warm and rich in tone! I wish the floors downstairs could have been preserved but there was hardly any left and it was patchy! Nonetheless, the new reclaimed floors look nice and will darken naturally over the years to look more like the original floors.

Here are some pics (after the first coat of poly has been buffed):

(this section was vacuumed)

The downstairs is just about ready for the first coat of poly, which needs just a few hours to dry so the goal for today is to put a second coat upstairs, followed by the first coat downstairs, followed by the second coat downstairs. If that happens, the floors will get their last coat Sunday. Worst case scenario, they'll complete work on Monday, still giving us one day before the move to have the house cleaned!

Franz and I are working up rehab for the house next door and were hoping we could talk with you about the contractors you used and how your experience was with them. I can be reached at whenever you have a minute. Much appreciated and look forward to talking with you agian soon!
