Well my work on cleaning the house has paid off and I have cleared the floorboards in my office.
These are the original floors in all of their scuffed and notched glory. They don't look as though they have been refinished even once since they were laid down 152 years ago.
Now here's the debate. Do I cover them up, refinish them or clean the living daylights out of them? Do I pull them all up and move them closer together or do I fill in the gaps with rope like they did back in the day?
I'm leaning towards cleaning the living daylights out of them and filling the gaps with rope. How hard can it be, right?
Something tells me it will be an absolute bear of a job, but really worth it in the long run.
Decisions, decisions, decisions...
Good thing I'll have the winter to contemplate it.
