We’re putting in a new subfloor in the little mudroom off the kitchen. This had once been an entrance from the porch into the kitchen, later it was closed up and boarded over and turned into a pantry or something. We want it to be our new main entrance. Judy and Richard found this amazing Victorian door in our attic and lovingly restored and repainted it, it’s all finished now and just waiting to be installed.

First though, we’ll need to fix up this mudroom floor, before we can put in the threshold and straighten out the doorframe to hang the door. We’ve already gutted the walls down to the studs an ripped up some weird crooked flooring, and then put down a layer of metal screening across the entire room, between the beat-up old subfloor and the new subfloor, to keep all the squirrels and critters out. We are planning to eventually tile the floor with the Argentine encaustic tiles that we brought from Buenos Aires!
