We did it in sections...


Rick laid a section. We feared the dogs paws would mar the wood, so he'd sand that section right away and then I'd put on a gym spar finish. In this pic the section to the left is finished, the right side is still bare wood.



This pic is a pretty good representation of the difference in looks between finished and unfinished. We had to plan things so we'd have a pathway into the room with the computer! Not being able to access the computer was not an option...even for 24 hours!

Your floors are absolutely beautiful! Can you tell me what "gym spar" is?

Gym spar is what is used on gymnasium floors. It's a urethane coating, with great protection from scratches and very durable for heavy traffic areas.
