house is complete
 
Just wanted to invite anyone who is interested to check out pictures in the photo album of my house I just got through building (acting as general contractor and some small trades myself) Thanks to all who helped in answering questions and there will be more as I am about to break ground on detached garage...

Looks nice. One question: What's up with the face-nailing of the hardwood flooring?

Thanks.......I was thinking about doing it for the added rustic look (since floors have that look anyway ie: wide plank, knots, and beveled edges to show seperation) then I found out the hardwood called for glue since it was so wide. Instead of spending a few hundred dollars on glue (what I had priced anyway, Bostik's Best) I decided to definetly nail it and despite being a total PITA, I am glad I did.

Looks good dude! I love the floors. Is that engineered wood or just prefinished? I'm going to install unfinished, but you've got the color I'd like to achieve. Nice job all around!
