With everything moved off to one side of the building (or downstairs to the storage room and office), we were ready to commence with putting in the floor. As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, our goal is to build a store with a Prohibition-era Billings motif, and that meant getting rid of the carpet and putting in real oak floors.

We have to get everything cleared out of the way on half the floor so that flooring installation can commence tomorrow.
Over 6,000 pounds of oak flooring waiting to be installed, starting tomorrow!

When This House of Books acquired the assets of Red Lodge Books & Tea, we got a lot of bookshelves. I suppose that’s to be expected for a bookstore. The decór in Red Lodge was all rustic light wood, mostly with raw pine and cedar. To fit with the look of the new store, those light pine shelves needed to get darker, as we did at the first of our staining parties today.

We’ve ripped out the carpet; we’ve painted the ceiling. It’s time for the walls! Time to get rid of those drab beiges and color this place up. Once again, we had a great collection of volunteers to make things happen: and many of them came back for the second coat the next day!
