Remember those old hardwoods that were original to the building? We stripped them from the top and bottom floors. The time came for them to be moved to a temporary home, to be milled and eventually be moved back in where they belong.  We ask that if you have had experience renovating a historical building, to please share in a comment below. We love to...
