The concrete stainers just left and the floor is stained! They re-cleaned the floor and taped spaces where the spray might land on that it shouldn’t Our process does not use acid but uses acetone. Our color is a mixture of warm walnut and cowboy something to bring out the golds we want.
I’m sure we don’t need to explain why we want a Fleur de Lis in our stained concrete floor! But just in case someone slept through the many posts where we mentioned our love for the New Orleans Saints. That design is their logo and it’s on the front of the coffee cup in the graphic to the left. The Fleur de Lis that Roy has (not Roy Chauvin but Roy Bankston) is too large for our small living room, so he’s getting a smaller one to fit in the diamond as you enter the door. This means he couldn’t put the first coat of sealer on today. They will be coming back later today to cover the floor with two layers of paper protection. He said they will put 3 or 4 layers of sealer on when they uncover the floor nearer to house completion.
Roy is a really nice guy and answered all my questions and allowed me to video some of his work. He also sprayed a coat of sealer under where the cabinets will be so I could see what it will look with some sealer on. He said it will lighten up as it dries so I’ll take another picture of that area tomorrow to get a better idea.
It’s taking the internet forever to download the pictures and videos, so I may not be able to post this until Thursday morning.
These pictures do not do the floor justice. Also without the sealer you cannot tell what it will really look like since the sealer really brings out a lot of highlights.
Roy Chauvin worked on the water well shed doors all day. Never will there be a more perfect pair of doors anywhere!!
Thursday there will be no construction other than Roy working on the water well shed. I’m going to buy bushes nearby in Amite, for the front of the house tomorrow. Friday the wall insulation man will be here and the vinyl siding guys will make more progress on the siding. Next week – the many phases of sheet rock which takes a few days. The sheet rock man came today to measure everything so we got to meet him.
That’s it for today! Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
