Rodney, this looks pretty good. There is no better way to transform the look of a room than to add wood flooring. Once it is finished and the trim is up the room(s) will take on a completely different look.

Nice job. It is a lot of work but well worth it.

I agree with Scott, adding a wood floor brings out the beauty in a room. I installed wood on my entire 2nd floor and I love it. Nice job.

Please post the pics of it stained! I’m terribly interested in wide plank pine floors, which I assume this is. Also if anybody knows of other projects of wide plank floors, feel free to post or link. Was this construction pine? southern yellow, etc?
