More and More a Floor

 We now have the subfloor down for the first floor and the first floor and most of the second floor wall logs sanded.

We should be getting our flooring in this week and hope to knock that out quickly. After that we are going to frame and close up the gable ends of the roof. 

Here you can see a before and after of the sanding process.




  1. WOW!!! I am amazed at all that you guys are doing! Imagine sittin' on the front porch with your guitar worshipping with a sunrise. Love you guys............cb

  2. What are you guys going to use for flooring? I would be careful putting down the flooring so early. You are going to be staining, chinking, and painting drywall still. You really don't want to have to worry about all the stuff you are going to get on the floor. It's looking great!

    1. Thanks Rachel,
      The plan is to put the pine flooring down before we frame so we dont have to cut the boards around the walls. We will not be doing any staining inside the house and as far as chinking we will cover the floors with canvas drop cloths while that is going on. Then we will sand and finish the floors after all the painting and inside work is done.

  3. You guys aren't going to stain your logs? What about the exterior? And do you mean that you don't want to cut the boards around the interior drywall walls? How long a span are you running with your pine flooring? Another thing you might want to consider is that you might have issues with your floor because your house won't be climate controlled when you are installing it. Don't mean to pry, we have just been through some of this stuff ourselves.
