Worked on the lofts this weekend. I put the second coat of varnish on the storage loft and worked on trim that will need paint on that end.
I also put most of the Tongue & Groove floor down in the sleeping loft.
I remember thinking I was being clever…really only needed about 7-7 1/2 feet of loft but I thought then I’d be cutting every floor board to fit, wasting both time and material. So I made the loft a full 8′ long figuring the extra space wouldn’t hurt and I could just buy the 8′ boards and nail them down without cutting.
I had forgotten to figure in the 1/4″ tongue & groove pine paneling on the gable end wall. So today I found my 8′ floor boards were at least 1/4″ too long and I had to cut them all anyway.
