Finishing Your Own Wood Floor
Like most other hills and valleys across the globe, the majestic Rocky Mountains, and Wasatch Front in particular, were created by the heaving’s and jarring’s of the Earth.
Sand the floor with a few different levels of grit, starting with the roughest and moving up. Sand with the grain and smooth it out.
If, however, you feel like you can handle a basic deck construction by yourself or if you desire to try something new while styling up the back yard, building your own deck can be both personally and fiscally rewarding. The first step in this project will be to plan and design the deck. It should be kept extremely simple if this is your first attempt. Perhaps a simple rectangular shape fitted to the size you desire to be converted into a deck area.
Once the plans are made, you will have the information of what type of materials you will need and in what amount. For a basic rectangular deck, typically one will need grooved cement foundation blocks, or piers, a number of two-by-four planks, the number and length to be determined by the size of the deck, and decking boards.
Next, dampen a rag with mineral spirits and wipe down the entire surface of the floor. Your goal is to completely remove all remaining dust and best prepare the wood for the coming coats of staining or finishing.
The movement of Earth’s enormous tectonic plates brings powerful earthquakes at every seismic shift and the same is true for the plates that have formed the Rockies and those that have merge along the Wasatch Fault.
Once that perimeter has been made, use your applicator to spread the coat evenly into the center of the floor. The applicator helps smooth the surface of your base and evens any ridges that may have been created between drying and wet portions of the floor.
Danger of a powerful earthquake rocking the urban Wasatch Front has been predicted since 1883 when an employee of the U.S. Geological Survey, G. K. Gilbert, announced through the Salt Lake Tribune that residence of the Salt Lake Valley should prepare for and expect a disastrous earthquake erupting along the fault line they lived on. Since then the long awaited super-tremor has been anxiously anticipated and monitored at the fault for activity.
This will typically mean that sections of the ground where the deck is to be built will need to be either raised or lowered to accommodate the leveling requirements of the piers.
