Step 1 for Flooring is Done

Like I mentioned in the last post we finished planing the flooring, which we believe is pine. We used all the boards we had, which came out to be just the right amount. I meant to post a picture of the planed wood so here it is

I took that before we finished the wood, so we now have a stack almost twice that size.
Step 2 is to dry the wood to make sure we do not have a shrinkage problem, like we had with the last floor we laid.
Step 3 will be to tongue and groove all sides, which will be a task in itself.
Step 4 will be a final planing or sanding to make sure all boards are even in height.
And finally Step 5 will be laying the floor and then staining it, the fun part ~ at least for me anyway.
