We needed to get the floors completed so that we could move into part of the house, instead of the daily commute from Sucre.
The next layer was installed in each room and crosshatched to take the final finishing layer.
The final finishing layer was hand polished using a stainless steel float to remove any cracks. Ed had read up on this technique when studying polished concrete and it worked well with the adobe.
3 coats of boiled linseed oil were applied, all of which needed time to dry and then a coating of wax to seal and waterproof the floors.
Luckily we found a floor polisher for sale in Sucre, which made life considerably easier.
The final result was beautiful - like old shiny leather.
Our new floors were so comfortable to walk on with bare feet and so warm.
It had been a lengthy process to achieve the finished effect, but well worth it.
