I've got a fixer-upper that I'm going to start working on. Actually, it was a reasonably nice rental up until recently when the animals that were living there disguised as "tenants" left. So as long as I am being forced to spend the time and money to repair the place I thought it might be a good time to update it a bit.

Hardwood floors are always better in rentals but I don't want to spend $2-3K if I don't have to. Wife reminded me we have a sawmill (love it when it's her idea) and an abundance of Red Oak trees. So here starts the beginning of what I'm sure will be a long project. But at the end of it all, I should feel some pride in my accomplishments and bask in the glory of not giving Home Depot a dime...

So here we go! This is a Red Oak on its way to becoming flooring. Long ways to go but it's got to start somewhere, right? I'm picking out good, straight stock and I like the aesthetics so far. :-)
