is the completed earthen floor in the finished house. It took
many weekends of smoothing and drying the various layers,
then soaking the floor with linseed oil and turpentine. After
the floor was saturated, I coated it with a solvent-based
acrylic sealer. It is very strong now, but softer than concrete
and kind to bare feet. I love it. I can mop it and it holds
up to lots of foot traffic, but I do have to be careful of
heavy furniture on small legs making dents in it.
