We are back at home after being driven out by the fumes for 3 days. No one mentioned the toxic fumes when we ordered the flooring job. Luckily my mom lives a few blocks away and has a few spare rooms. Here is the office floor, sanded and refinished. It looks so much better than it did!
And here's a view of the 80 year old floor in the front foyer, which butts up to the new floor in the living room. (New floor upper right side -- old floor on the lower left.)
And here's a view of the corner of the room showing the new floor and old paint. The painters arrive tomorrow -- hopefully.
