Floors are in the works in the main house. The front three bedrooms are the last on the main floor to be refinished. Pulling up the carpet revealed that one of the bedrooms was built over the original porch, so there was only a floating subfloor under the carpet. We found some reclaimed heart pine to match the rest of the downstairs which was salvaged from a Biltmore Forest home built in the same year (1921). In the below photo, you will see the installed flooring, previously painted, before being sanded down.
Upon pulling back the carpet in the living room, we have found numerous patches from years of renovations. We are salvaging some heart pine from the hallway to fill in the missing flooring runs. Attendees of this week’s potluck might get a sneak peak!
