The Great Company has a great space!
The original wood flooring from 1906. The floors had been painted over several times during its century of use, so we had to sand-blast the floors then sand them over twice. Then we used three coats of water-based varnish to bring out its elegance. The sanding took three weeks (we just projected one week), and our exhausted contractor shared with us that in over 20 years of contract work, he had never worked with wood of such fine quality. It still amazes us as we step on these floors each day.
