Lots of sanding. Lots of dust. Lots of work preparing surfaces for finishes. There is a coat of primer on the walls. This is a critical step because it serves as the hand-off from the drywallers to the painters. Once the primer hits the wall, any rough areas can be seen and addressed. The floors have been patched and sanded. We have decided to use a new flooring finish on this house. We’ve been hearing good things about the product and it scores green points by being a noVOC product. We’re using Rubio Monocoat in the color charcoal. The color that you see in the photo is from the fumed coat. This treatment adds a greying effect to the wood, which we thinks ties in well with our contemporary finishes. The floors will be stunning!
Tomorrow the color coat goes down on our hardwood. Meanwhile, the finished concrete floors downstairs will receive a sealer. We will let the floors take a siesta over the weekend and then begin trim in earnest next week. Cabinets will be installed. Tile details will be applied. Countertops will be templated. Color will hit the walls. The finish line is coming into focus.
