Wood Floor is Started and Driveway is almost complete

We spent the last weekend working on dirt since we had an unusually dry stretch for this time of the year. We finished up filling the pit and started building up the drive way at the bottom of the property and got a drainage pipe put in. Water has been known to flow through there on really heavy rains. It is still pretty soft so I have not been ably to drive the big track loader up there yet. We did manage to get the old back hoe stuck while we were filling the pit, the track loader pulled it right out though. Hopefully the next rain we have will be slow and steady to help settle everything in without washing it away.

We also got started on the hickory wood floors last night. We got started in the big room and we also got 2/3 of the office done. I hope to have the floor all laid by the weekend and then hopefully we can start sanding by Sunday(that may be a pipe dream). I have been looking into the Bona Naturale finish, but it is pretty expensive at $120 a gallon. I am going to estimate that we will need between 6-8 gallons. Plus we will need 3 gallons of primer.
