We have some activity in the flooring department. . . about halfway finished the second floor!
We are very happy with the hardwood. From a friend’s tip, we found this Quebec maple at timbertown in Edmonton. It is pre-finished 2″ flooring. . . and because it is a non-standard size (2 1/4″ or 3 1/2″ seem to be the standards), we got it at an excellent price.
As you can see from the pictures, we also have stair railings now! And that little bit of red that you see at the right of the east-facing picture is a half-wall at the top of the staircase area. There is some tiling now, too. . . pictures to follow.
