Re: Old hard wood floors


The floor is not original to the house.

It looks to be a deck/porch enclosed.

The layout and nailing pattern is a modern one.

I'm assuming it is original to the house because it is in the upstairs portion of the house in this picture and all around that room is log walls.

Re: Old hard wood floors


And I sanded and stained the floors last weekend. Just need to polly them now. I filled the holes and left the gaps from the Tung and groove. The last 2 pics are from a part of the house that is from the 50 from what I have been told

Re: Old hard wood floors


The framed in picture. Looks like that room and porch was an add on.

Interesting...

The whole layout was change.
The room was brought out to be even with the outer wall.
A new porch ( partial wrap around ) with concrete patio and a extended roof line

A new second floor built atop the added room and old porch.
With both chimneys removed and one added.
And, another addition in the back.

A picture is worth a thousand words.


Are you going to put a deck/stairs to the second floor slider.?
Or a flat roof.?

Re: Old hard wood floors


For now I will put the gate back up in front of the patio door. I would like to add a garage off that end of the house but don't know if it would look right with the style of the house

I think it would look okay.

Maybe extend the second floor over the garage and add some dormers or one big one.
