(I love the way this photographed by accident last night. The blur on the tree roots and doorway are EXACTLY what I'd love Halfland to look like when filmed; smoky, storybook illustration-like.)
Finished trimming out the hardwood floor shape, hot glued it down onto the cottage set's cardboard sub-flooring. Worked perfectly, saved a lot of time and walking back and forth cutting each slat to fit by hand. It was like a hardwood floor carpet rolled out.
I began using the nails that I had been saving for years for this exact task. Felt great to finally be doing what I'd been thinking about for so long.
Little scrap slats were cut here and there to begin to fill in the missed spaces. Some dried wood glue leaks need to be either chiseled off or sanded down before the whole floor gets stained with a light tinted, dilute matte medium. I also need to marry the places where the flooring meets the natural earth, likely with my soil method and tufts of grass. Shoe molding will join the edges of the floor to the cottage walls where they meet on the other three sides.
