One More Coat

We've been told that we would know when the earthen floor had enough linseed oil. Now we know the truth of it because, during our April visit, the floor seemed dull and dry. Scott suggested that we apply one more coat of oil  just before we returned to Logan.

To that end, we removed most of the furniture from the main living room, folded the rug up around the table and went to work.

To keep oil from splashing on the walls, Scott applied it around the perimeter of the room using a small brush.

He used a paint roller on a long handle for the rest of the room.

This should be the last coat it will need for a while.

When the oil dries, the floor will not be this shiny, but it will have the vibrancy it lacked.
