Laying Floor

I feel pretty good about what I got done this week.  A lot of staining, some glue work and then more staining.

I also did a test run of how the windows and doors look in the walls when the house is partially assembled.  This is going to be a picture heavy post so apologies in advance.

I got the front room floor laid out and glued into place and then stained with the American Cherry stain.  I'm pretty pleased with how it looks.

I haven't added the finish yet but I'm pleased with how it looks.  A little worn in places and not quite level, like the underflooring isn't as sturdy as it could be.

I added the flooring for the kitchen too, and used a walnut stain.

I also attached the railings to the stairs and I really love how it looks.

I worked on the second floor too.  I think it looks pretty good.

I need to add another layer of stain and move a few pieces around but it doesn't look bad. 

Tested the walls.

A look at the ceiling for the first floor.

And a look at how the windows and doors look.

And that's all for the day.


  1. Wow! You are moving right along and everything is looking great! Those wood floors are so pretty! I now can see how you've laid everything out and it is going to be a nice view to be able to see everything displayed! The doors and windows look really good together - I love your color choices!

    1. Thanks! It's something of a relief to get the floors in on the first floor at least. I need to make a few adjustments to the second floor with the herringbone but I'm still excited.

  2. It looks great! You've made so much progress!

  3. I LOVE the wood floor and the stairs! That is going to look great!

    Neat project... I like the crackle look on the outside of the house too

    Good job so far :)

    1. Thanks so much. I was so excited to see it (sort of) coming together.

  4. Ooooh, I love how it's turning out. The floors look great. So exciting seeing it start to come together.

    1. Thanks! I'm feeling fairly pleased about it myself.
