Our wood floors are installed!!!
We did a solid hickory in a 5" wide planks with long and short boards mixed. We chose #3 common grade wood as it has more character and color variation.
We had it laid at a 45*angle coming off the kitchen wall.
It will be sanded and finished just a few days before move in. We will do a high shine, smooth, natural (clear) finish.
John and I think it looks amazing!
