Before and afters are just the best, aren’t they? Especially when it’s your own house! Last year our big project was combining our parlor and living room and golly is it different! Here is a couple pictures I took just a few days after we got the keys in the spring of 2014.

~  Jani Ortlund

Dearest Carl spent a long time sanding and refinishing these floors and they are the crowning glory of the space. I’m looking forward to continuing to improve it and make it hospitality friendly!
