Misc. Floor Photos

Prior to having the floor installed, we removed a piece of cracked marble that had served as the mantle for the fireplace, underneath this piece of marble we found this fingerpainted 1980. Evidently, this was written when the house was lifted and new foundation added... Although this marble had cracked when the house was lifted, the prior residents chose to put the old marble back in place instead of putting in new marble/tile, etc. Our next project will be fixing the fireplace hearth.

The photo on the right is a close-up of the transition between our new floor, and existing lumber in the kitchen. We tried to match it, but not too closely. Our new floor is 5" red oak with golden pecan (slightly red tint) stain. It looks wonderful compared to what was there... !
