Refinishing Douglas Fir Floor

In my April 2012 blog entry called Douglas Fir Discovered, I presented the first installment of the story of creating my husband’s new office in our 1930 Spanish Mission style home in Willow Glen, California. So far, we have:

  1. Ripped out stinky old pink carpet, pad, nailing strips
  2. Ripped out ugly yellow linoleum under the stinky pink carpet
  3. Leveled the floor and reinforced some soft spots (big project in itself!)
  4. Stripped, filled, stained, sealed the Douglas Fir boards under the ugly linoleum

The work is being well done by the Willow Glen Floor Company.  We have also had them address several areas where the oak floors were scratched or there was a board cracked. To finish up, we still need to:

  • Add baseboards
  • Touch up paint
