The floor is going in!
Excitement mounts as we near the completion of the upstairs. Putting down hardwood flooring on concrete isn’t easy, but progress is being made. Since the boards cannot be nailed, we are glueing it with a special glue that requires working very quickly. It is also VERY sticky!
First we spread on the glue with a specially designed trowel. Then the boards are put down and hammered snuggly together. The boys are doing a great job! Finally, the cleanup needs to be done. Evelyn has been employed almost full time just wiping up spots of glue that have landed on the varnished surface of the boards.
The floor is certainly starting to look nice!
In all the busyness of construction, we do not, however, want to loose sight of why we are working – for the glory and honour of Christ. “We have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: that we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.” Ephesians 1:11-12 (emphasis added)
