Do you know how long it takes for birds to build their nest? Well, I don't but what I do know is that it is very similar to installing wood floors. This past weekend while having our Sunday breakfast, Jeff and I saw two (mom and dad ) dove pigeons flying in and out of the tree in our backyard. We saw each bird carry some sort of twig or leaf and they drop it off the part of the tree that has already some twigs and leaf on it. As soon as Jeff saw this, he immediately went out to the backyard, took his broom and started removing some of the twigs and leafs. I believe these birds are staring to build a nest. It might look mean, but if and when they have completed the nest then the little ones will be born and it's now impossible to take down the nest because of the baby birds. Jeff is worried that once the nest is there, these birds will be depositing droppings and the deck will be filled with you know what.
The similarity is that when Jeff was installing the living room and kitchen floors, he would take a piece of wood, picking some light or dark tones, then try to mix up sizes to create that nice effect. One at a time, each piece is fitted to the groove and each piece is nailed to the floor. It's really amazing watching him work as he pays attention to details and the craftsmanship that he puts into his work is very professional. See for yourself.
