    First floor

    This the first floor out of my shop that I made and installed. All in all it came close to 600sqft of red oak flooring. The pics are bad as they are phone pics. They had pet stained carpet that was soaked thru into the flakeboard flooring. No finish yet. The owner is not sure if they are going to match the other floors or if they are going to refinish all the others and go darker.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Looks real good, Al. Must be a good feeling of accomplishment to see it go from rough lumber to finished, installed flooring.

    impressive Al, you do general contracting, flooring, restoration, custom furniture, lilke Ive said before, there are so many talented people on this site. Always amazes me how much knowledge and skills someone can accumulate over the years.
    Ive become a professional eater, the only thing I do really good.
    Too bad youre up there, my wife would love a new wooden floor and I need a stair handrail made and installed.
