Flooring options

Time is not on my side in this project. I really wanted to use linseed oil to refinish the floors. But we had a reference for a hardwood floor refinisher–who actually returned our call–and he doesn’t use linseed oil. However, he does use a water-based urethane, and that’s better than polyurethane in terms of off-gassing.

Also, they finished a day ahead of schedule. And since time is at a premium, I am glad about that.

So I feel bad about not using linseed oil, which was something of a priority for me. But on the other hand, since we’re moving in a few days, I’m glad the job is done, and I’m glad we were able to find a way to cut down on the off-gassing (although believe me, the house does not smell pretty right now).

Still, though, don’t the floors look good?

  1. Thanks! After years in apartments, we’re happy to have walls we can paint whatever color we want, and these colors make us even happier!
