Inching Along Finishly
Currently, The Other Justin is repairing all the oak flooring on the second level. But, before it can be varnished, all the trim on the second floor needs to be refinished. The process uses denatured alcohol and, no matter how careful I am with taping, I just know some of it will seep under and damage the new floor finish. So, I have now started the long long long process of refinishing the trim. This project will, no doubt, prove to be the 2021 Endless Nightmare that the reshingling proved the past few years. Sigh.
The Other Justin and I have worked out a plan.
He is almost done with the second floor. Then he will infill an area on the first-floor where a basement stair was inserted in 1950 (and which I removed). Then…and I am beyond excited about this…he is going to lay down a new maple floor in the kitchen and servant’s hall as the original maple flooring is just too damaged to restore in the kitchen. There is no flooring in the servant’s hall.
Then Justin will depart.
Sometime later in the year, after all the trim is refinished on the second floor, he will return to sand stain varnish.
So, Ross needs to get VERY busy. And, how can I clone Kenny? I need a team of Kenny’s.
