I was happiest in this process when I was doing something active towards the completion of my tiny house. Finishing the floors was my job. The students installed it, then did a sanding, and I applied the finish. It was a long process – four coats (and sanding between each coat) later and it was almost done. This was fun and there was much advice from my head custodian. I have to admit, taking his advice for the last coat made a big difference. We'll have to do a final coat or too after the rest of the interior is done because the floor has gotten pretty banged up despite the students' reminders to take off your shoes when you go inside. I think I'll cover the floor with a tarp while we finish things off for a little bit more protection.
