Installing The Floors & Millwork

It’s time to tackle the hardwood floors and finish carpentry in the Addition! We’ll lay the new hardwood floors in the Kitchen, Mudroom, and hallway on the first floor. We’ll also install the hardwood flooring on the second floor. The hardwood floors will be finished to match the home’s original floors.

Finish carpentry refers to mostly aesthetic details like baseboards, railings, window trim, door casings, crown molding, etc. All of the first-floor oak millwork will be stained to match the home’s existing woodwork, and millwork on the second floor will be enameled white.

The hardwood flooring has arrived! We're ready to install the floors in the Kitchen and new larger 2nd-story Homeowner's Bedroom.
