Finally, over 3 months later, I am working on the very last room for the hard wood! (Yippee!) It's quite pathetic, now when I go to Starbucks, I don't want to add anything to my coffee that I have to mix in, as I get stir stick envy....why are theirs so much straighter, flatter....etc. Oh! The "stones" reference in the title, that is what the tin can is full of, it helps weigh down the wonky-doolally sticks when I glue them in.
I ended up taking off the flip up roof to finish the floors as no lock hinge would work and it kept banging me on the noodle.
