sneak peek of the flooring...

While the stonework continues outside, we're laying hardwood floors on the inside. I'll have lots more to say when I get this figured out... but for now I have some progress to show. This is white-oak and walnut, laid out in a checkerboard pattern for one of my son's rooms. We have also nailed down some hickory strip flooring in one of the other rooms. I can't wait to sand some of this and see what it looks like finished.

It looks great, but what about the expansion and contraction of 2 kinds of woods layed in opposite directions? It may be 'ok' I'm not an expert.

Good question. The whiteoak is quarter-sawn, as is about half of the walnut, so that should help to reduce expansion and contraction issues a bit. Still, this could be an issue I suppose. We'll find out! :)

I'm contemplating using roof slate on my bathroom floor, and have questions. Are you still responding to comments?
