old wood is the best wood

Floorboards! The whole restoration of the barn has stalled for quite some time because of financing the floor. I’d done some research online and only the delivery would cost a bum but now I went down the wood shop and kindly asked for an estimate and some advice on what to buy. Turns out it’s not at all as expensive as I thought, so now I got my wood! Quite a challenging task but I’m sure when it’s all done I will be a lot wiser, trying not to think to much and just do instead. I started with measuring and re-measuring. After laying out the fresh wood I realised that the old beams are actually of no use and only in the way. All of them apart from one are loose and not holding anything up so I removed them. Of course I won’t chuck them away but right now there is no room. Had to cut one in half to get it out. Amazing how fresh the core is after more than a hundred years! Carrying the huge old beams out I felt like the Mountain(Hathor Bjornsson). My willpower is definitely stronger than my muscle power. Now I will be busy for some time but as soon as the floor is done I’m in business!
