After the last of the mudding and sanding we began the clean up, which involved lifting the protective cardboard covering we had over the concrete floors. This proved well worth it in minimizing the clean up.
Grinding and polishing concrete floors is an amazing process that transforms something ordinary into something beautiful. We chose to keep the natural coloring of the concrete to allow for the natural variations to be visible.
The smooth floor is a great surface to see daylight move around the house.
Our kids are loving the polished concrete and making use of them for their personal dance floor.
We are anxious to eventually get to the final stair treads. The contrast of the wood to the concrete floors give the stairs a very active almost growth like aesthetic.
