    I cant help but think that the reason you have so many followers here and on your vlog is that your positivity, enthusiasm, and determination is so relatable for all of us. Watching you and Romeo as well as your mom and of course behind the scenes; your dad makes all of us so stinking proud of ya'll. We all feel like family here watching you complete this cottage and watch it come to life. You are what we all see as either a daughter, a sister or a beastie and we can't help but cheer your accomplishments through the camera. Thank you for sharing! You bring light to all our lives.

    The “DIY hardwood floor plan” infographic was extremely helpful as a viewer to understand the different layers! Thank you!

    When we all thought the windows took the most work, here comes the floors! It's oddly satisfying to see Macenna laying the tiles and the floorboards and if you're just watching the video you'd think it's so easy. But we all know it's not. The floors all looked so pretty. This house has come a really long way from 2021.

    MADD respect for you taking on those floors. And the Carpenter who built those floors 100 years ago would also probably totally appreciate all the hard work that you have put back into the home. ❤️

    We usually use the water proofing on a small part of walls as well, about 4-5 inches high like skirting, to add a seal and keep moisture out of the cracks in between floors and walls. After this barrier, we roll out a layer or two of a thick underlay. If the floor space is too large, the underlay can be done with intervening plywood boards in order to avoid having a dip in the middle of a room with time. You can try this at the guests’ cottages later. Lastly, transition pieces can vary, and a lot of them have a tongue to be imbedded between 2 types of flooring. I just hope you left some space to accommodate. Lastly, Loving every minute of your videos, Very nice work and a superior attention to detail overall. This is exactly how I’ve been doing it. This type of work has its toll, but it’s worth every second in the end. Take your time and takes care of yourself 💐

    The craziest part of all is how high quality your videos are! We are literally seeing how much work you’re putting into the house. Most people wouldn’t even be able to do that, let alone have time for anything else. But you’re able to create so many videos for us! And not even quick videos, but videos with great editing, angles, lighting, everything. It’s much appreciated 💕

    Oh my word you are one of the most patient, hard working and exacting person I know! Your home is such a labor of love! You impress me more w each video. Those floors are a work of art, truly truly. How long did you dream and plot and plan before you guys started house hunting? Your house seems to be springing full blown from your imagination. Once you walked in w keys it was like you had already made so many design decisions. So very cool to participate in this w you and all of us who check in w such excitement for every vlog. THANK YOU
