Melissa starts tackling the strange angles of the kitchen counter, planning out the layout of the 12x12 tiles:
and I got the bathroom door up on the hinges and oiled up. Here it is from the outside:
and here's an inside shot. Did I brag about how the window is a shelf from a refrigerator? I love that. Nice frosted window.
and since I had the linseeded rag (you have to be really careful with linseed oil, as it has a spontaneous combustion quality as it dries [on rags, not doors] so when I oil something, that's officially the last time that rag gets used. It goes into the firepit afterwards. So, I try hard to get every drop of oil and use out of a rag... so I run around re-oiling stuff), I cleaned up the living room benches:
Melissa did a bunch of work filling in the subfloor in the bedroom. We'd worn it down over the last year (or more?) kicking up dust and such, and so by sweeping up the dust, sifting it out and adding water, we were able to pretty easily spread it out again.
Note all the protection of the white walls from splashes. We will need that for the finish layer as well.
They say the oiled and waxed earth floor will be the same color it is when it's wet... so the above might be the color of our future floors.
Meanwhile, now that the granite counter end is in place, I've added the 'hip bumper' to that section (so we can get down to finishing the plaster around it) and started making it fit into the curve:
After some chiseling and some sanding, I added the first layer of linseed oil, and it looks pretty good:
I suppose I could have gotten it rounder, but it feels pretty smooth on your hand even now.
