I promise, we'll shut up about floors soon...

...but we're just so darn excited; we pulled up an edge of carpet in the first-floor office, soon to be library, once was the kitchen, to see what we were confronting and it's just what we'd hoped for: hardwood. It looks somewhat different from the wood in the dining and living rooms (darker, browner); whether it's different wood (evidently we can expect maple in an 1870's kitchen) or just a different finish, we're not sure yet (hey, we had thirty seconds with a one-and-a-half square foot section, in a room with no lights!). But it's definitely good wood, and might not need refinishing with any urgency. (We've got plenty of urgent projects, never fear.)

  1. Man, I wish you had got a clearer shot, but it looks like it could be Maple, Birch, or possibly Oak (less likely).
