Floor finish completed.

I’ve got materials for a third coat but I don’t think I’m going to do that.

There were bits that were still a tiny bit tacky this morning after 24 hours. If this coat dries as slowly as the first did, I won’t be able to do any more work in here until Saturday and then only in stocking feet. And I want to start setting up the closet, which is Stage One of MOVING IN!!!

Wood trim will have to work around the furniture. The main part of the cabin, I confess, mostly got trimmed in good intentions but I can’t get away with that here because of all the raw drywall edges everywhere. But if I wait till that’s done I won’t be in before spring, and I’m not waiting any longer. The move-in begins this coming weekend.

:) It smells awful at the moment, but it really looks nice.

    I see that you didn’t have LB add any “non-skid” while the finish was still sufficiently wet. How slippery is it going to be when you get some water on it? Or are you intentionally planning to take up figure skating, in preparation for the next Winter Olympics?

    I don’t expect it to be slippery at all. Certainly not compared to the main cabin’s tile floor, which is positively hazardous. It dries a lot less glossy than shown in that picture.

    Looks fantastic joel good on you.

    I work hard to improve my life by building things around me to make life easier and more enjoyable and it is always a pleasure to see the work of a like-minded person. Well done.

    For future reference, Japan Drier makes your paint/Poly-U dry faster.

    I think his intent, Michael, is for Poly-U to never cross his doorstep ever again…
