I think the Reno cottage is as dust free as it's going to get. It been brushed, wiped and vacuumed within an inch of our lives. Thankfully we didn't have to punch and fill nail holes as the floor had already been varnished. Someone else must have done a good job as there was still filler in nearly all of the holes, even after a few passes with the sander.
I've heard of floating floors, but floating walls?
Busted with a mini-vac.
Mr CH has his own meticulous method of mopping, he likes to soak his mop and then wipe a bit of on the floor away from the wall so he doesn't get varnish pooling against the wall.
He painted half of Bed 1 and then mopped through the doorway to avoid join marks. Lucky there is a second doorway. Not sure how the professionals do it, but this seems to work for us.
Then back through to finish Bed 1 and carry on through Bed 2 and lastly the lounge.
Baby almost mopped himself into a corner.
And then, when you stand back to admire your handy work, a colony of ants strolls out onto your wet varnish and dies! Lucky it only the first coat.
One coat down, two to go!
As we are still using the enclosed veranda for our workshop the floors won't be done just yet. They'll be varnished nearer to completion of the whole house, whenever that will be. It's starting to drag on a bit and the aim is to finish soon, weather permitting.
Can't believe it has been over a week since the last blog post, is it just me, or are the weeks flying past for everyone? Have a lovely week.
