The floor has been stained a lovely shade of Pecan (which way do you pronounce pecan?). Here it is half way stained but Brian has now completed it (that'll be in the next update!). This is sort of like a before and after shot all in one.

We're going to have some awesome classes in this room!!

Workshop Floors are down!

We've finished laying down the new pine floors. Next step is staining & sealing, we've picked a Pecan stain. Brian did such a great job with these floors-- they're gorgeous!

Also-- the wild turkeys have returned for the season! It's been so warm out this week that the snow has almost completely melted. The turkeys are back everyday and we're throwing out seed for them. We love to hear them gobble.
