Floor shims




Floor notching






More shims








She is still a little rough around the edges but with about 30 hours of sanding and some clear this thing will look like a million bucks.










one step closer

Is the shimming in the bay that you had to add supports to? Any spongy feeling in the floor with the gap between shims? I'm guessing with the hardwood that you wouldn't.

This is awesome to watch (read) and see your hard work pay off so well.

This is something your kids will cherish and enjoy for their lifetime, and their kids lifetime.

You truly are making a house into a "home".

And hats off to your wife for saving/preserving/and stripping of the trim. The process is painstaking and tedious, but the payoff is beyond rewarding.

I only plan on being in this house for around 10 to 15 years the wife and I will be building a small ranch about 2500 feet off the road as a forever spot when the kids are out the door

Hickory from the back 40 we logged it, had it milled, dried it, milled it again, and placed it this past weekend

right now it is still Unfinished but it will get 3 coats of clear after i sand the shit out of it

I've only redone a couple floors but don't get to carried away sanding it, just an orbital sander will do what you need. Once you lay some urethane on it a couple coats, then lightly sand again to knock down the high spots and clean it up, then a couple more coats and that floor will last a lifetime! I love my hickory floors. Build up the urethane and use that to make a smooth floor by lightly sanding and cleaning it up between coats. But like I said I'm no expert it's just my opinion. Nice work man.

Try not to leave the tape on your trim too long. Some blue tape has a 14 day release any longer and it will be difficult to remove.

I spaced the shims 12" apart to try to minimize that spongy feel
It worked well

I really like that look... I am installing new flooring next year and I am contemplating Hickory after seeing your floors. I can't wait to see it after stain.

2.5 Hours of sanding last night I got about 1/4th of the floor cleaned up


Just a few high spots like this one to knock down, the ones that are a real pain is when they are recessed.

I installed Hickory in my house, this was a prefinished 3-4-5 pattern by Chelsea Plank Flooring. We are super happy with them.
