These photos show the installation progress of our locally milled ash floors. I did herringbone detail in the kitchen mostly on my own (with some help from a buddy with the tricky border detail transition). Over 1800 sf of ash was installed plus both entry and back entry stairways… lots of work! My wonderful bro-in-law – who is way more experienced than I – even flew out from Ontario to help with the sanding. It was an epic job overall for a newbie chick whos not that young anymore! The building is a church conversion we have been working on over the years. Still far from complete but at least it’s liveable now!

Beautiful all round Rusty. Great job on the floor and I really like the conversion of the building. Quite miraculous.

Nicely done! Some of those old churches were built to last lifetimes, and I’m sure your reno has extended it to many more.

I am assuming there was a base floor layed before you started with the herringbone detail.

All of which I might add is very well done.
