This is one of the upstair bedrooms. There were two bedroom identical to this but you had to go thru at least two rooms to get the bathroom. It was totally weird. It was like being in a cave as well.
When you refinish your floors what do you use for poly? I bought a new prefinished oak floor and it's already scratching. I had unfinished maple flooring that came out of a wood warehouse and was going to be burned for firewood. I placed the unfinished floor down, stained it and used minwax poly for floors(5 coats due to 3 kids and a dog) and it seemed to take 5-6 days to totally dry. I did wait a day before putting on each coat.
Any suggestions for something better?
I've attached a picture of my almost finished room(just need to do the trim around the window) with the maple flooring.
I will always have a soft spot in my heart for old standing seam roofs! To me, they really speak of an era. Good job with all of your work! And WAY to go with those windows found in the field. What condition were they in? Did you have to replace any panes or muntins?

Saved a bunch by doing all the work myself but I did find out I definitely don't want to be a Mason when I grow up... My wife did a great job with the design and painting of the floor.
I had to re-read that. The design is PAINTED on the floor? WOW, I thought that was an area rug. She did an awesome job!!!
She did a design on paper first then used a lot of painters masking tape. She'd paint specific areas first then take off that tape and re tape to make a different part of each design. Definitely more patience that I would of had.
