Darren has been faithfully working on the barn every chance he gets. This is a picture of the beautiful floor he created. I did drive a few nails, but then we've already gone over that haven't we? :) Oh, and have you ever been in any of those old school rooms or churches (like in Cades Cove)? When you walk across the floor, they sound sturdy and hollow....that's how the floor sounds! I love it! And on some of the pieces of wood where it has the round place where a knot was? ...well, when the sun is shining and you're standing on the inside of the room, the rings around the knot look like they are a translucent red color...it's gorgeous!
I think it is looking amazing! I love the way the boards overlap and fit perfectly together on the siding. The man truly has talent and know-how.
He did ask me again to help him out. I walked over to where he was waiting for me...with the hammer! He had a piece of wood in place with several nails sticking in it. He asked me to nail them in. I started nailing and they went in like a breeze! I was so excited! I asked him if he saw how quickly those nails went in. He looks at me with a tired look and said "Just so you know, those holes were predrilled." Yeah, I guess the nails already sticking in the holes should've given that away...I was crushed. But I quickly recovered and moved on :D
