Our bedroom floors were finally finished after the third coat of estapol last week and Mr Crazy House fitted the new skirting boards on the weekend.
Nice and shiny.
We have quite a woop on one part of the outside wall due to removal and replacement of old stumps (before us), one of those quirks of old homes that you have to work with. The skirting board didn't sit level, so Mr CH nailed the board in place while I pushed it down a centimetre or so but not all the way to the floor or the slope would have been very noticeable. Nothing the vacuum cleaner can't handle.
Quick and neat work with a nail gun.
Mr CH feeling light-headed?
The wobbly-est wall the house, one of the cons of living in a wooden house.
Skirting board fitted, you can't tell - much.
Holes puttied and painted and fumes almost gone. Had to wait 3-5 days before moving heavy furniture across the floors.
Approx. cost $230 for estapol(on special) sanding disks, turps, acrylic sealer and skirting boards and white paint borrowed from a tin bought for the Reno Cottage next-door.We already had the floor mop and wool pad and paint tray(aprox.$30).
Still to do - replace powerpoint covers with new ones and tackle those windows.
No pretence of style 'round here just a refuge for "old stuff".
