Thank you for reporting this. Undo
All of the layers of flooring were removed down to the plywood sub floor. Then it was stained with a dark wood color and coated with a semi gloss polyurethane.

My first question. How does the plywod flooring maintain its look. Is it hard to take care of? - I am an licensed interior designer and I like doing things a little different than the norm and I am crazy about plywood floors. I understand this is your subfloor that has been stained a dark wood color and ployurethaned many times. LOVE IT - love the seamless look and LOVE the price. I think I can do this myself in my little cottage, I have orientals scattered around - doyou think I can keep the floors in good shape just me and my cat?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Joel added a TV cabinet underneath the island countertop that he plans to paint soon to match. A major remodel of the 1920s home took place in the 1950s. It is difficult to discern if the extension was intended as a porch or something else. Beyond the beam and columns, the ceiling curves and slopes.LL: Who or what inspires your personal style?K: Although we both appreciate the midcentury modern parts of the house, we also believe that every home renovation needs to be approached from its historical context. We wanted to create a place that had a sense of history but was comfortable for our growing family.
The home appears much larger than its 672 square feet, due to light walls, a pitched ceiling and large windows.
