The floor boards on the end porches will be painted. A two part epoxy primer was used to help extend the life of these boards. The floor boards in the interior were originally unpainted.
A clear finish of some sort will be used to help protect the floor from foot traffic.
 
Once the floor is done, work will shift to the wall framing and roof carlines.
