Green flooring

This job tired me out but it was nothing but fun. Hard work and fun. I think I have to get used to running up and down ladders and up and down stairs in these huge houses.
There is a company in New Jersey who tears down old barns, refinishes the boards and turns them into antique flooring. I met with the contractor who installs this stuff and the company that makes the adhesive to stick it to the floor. Everyone was new to me, but they were all just terrific. Even the homeowner was great. I don't mind the hard work. It's the people that can make a day miserable or fun. This job was fun. I think it was David Kelly of IDEO fame who explored the bridge between playing and creativity. We all had a very creative day.
