My grandparents' house is 50 years old. Nothing has been done to them in 30 years or more. Kitchen has fir and the rest of the house has wide board pine. There are gaps in between the woods maybe not but it began to look weird.I'm planning to renovate the entire house floors. The rooms and living room have wooden cupboards so I'd love to have an antique flooring which can…Continue
Hi guys,I'm living in North York with my wife and family.We're going on a vacation trip next month. We are so excited about the trip. Especially the kids!But right now we're in kind of a dilemma.

I'm thinking about renting a self-storage unit so that I can keep my things safe. I already found a…Continue

Hey friends, it has been quite a while since I posted something here! But whenever I stuck with indecision I remember this board and the peers here!

Ok, so I'll probably get the evil eye from some but here goes: my walls are log..and they are stained the popular 80's orange. I guess it's stain.
