Old Houses = Character

Yep, the houses and those that live in them, too.

My wife and I live in a house that was built in 1898 -it’s in it’s third century now!- and we love it. Of all the renovations completed thus far, we’ve not been in a position to refinish and reveal an original floor… until now. Here’s the floor in the master bathroom, from start to finish today:

The left side goes under the vanity, never to be seen. The rest, with all it’s character, has been revealed for the ages. Love the old look!

    Smitty, I like the site. I like the work. I like the woodworker.

    And I really like the library, er bathroom. It will need a magazine rack though.

    Please keep the posts coming.
