I was lucky enough to find oak under the carpet in my office. There are a couple spots that need to be repaired and the entire perimeter needs to be sanded and stained. For being nearly 100 years old, I have no complaints.
I installed new exterior lights yesterday and added dusk to dawn bulbs in each fixture to automate the on/off process. I was definitely surprised by how quickly each unit installed and am pleased with the results.
There’s something warm about a well lit home.
