    Time for a floor"done"

    Well my 100 year old southern yellow pine has done it's job well, now it is time for some new stuff. I have been looking and keeping an eye out for a deal for some time now and last night I pulled the trigger on some rustic birch.
    First pic is the old floor, Red is trying to figure out what's on the floor that needs to have it's pic taken. Second is the new stuff and the last pic is my brand new 1984 Nissan pick up.

    141K so say the clock. It came from Nevada so there is not a spot of rust on it. Round these parts a truck of that age is well lets just say not so much.

    That's a big pile of flooring. Is it going over several rooms? Is it going down right on the present floor?
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    2 rooms for a total of just under 500 SQF. No the old stuff has to come up. Larry's seen my short ceiling-ed house I can't spare the 3/4"

    I dont see any finished pics of no small block floor. Chuck is this floor meant to have small squares all over? them wood there looks to be all small pieces to make up squares as you lay them. Did you buy them with sunglasses on? or was this why you got a deal.
    Allen asked are you done yet???? lol

    My guess Rob is this is the wast from making purity floors. They cut out the bad spots and turn them into floor than sell it for a discount. The one box I opened had one long one in it that is a whole 24" yes that was twenty four inches long.
    I'm gonna drive my self nuts with this stuff but hey it was cheap.
