First I can’t say how thrilled I am to be posting here as an actual homeowner (first time!).
So, my husband and I just bought a home build in 1904 by the great grand father of the man we purchased it from. This is the first time this home has not been owned by his family and it is in impressive condition. We wish nothing more than to take the best care of this well loved place.
My question is regarding the floors, we have removed the carpet and are now left with the sold wood original subfloor (3 1/4 in). We will eventually place new floors over these but until we have the funds for that we have decided to paint them, as they are solid, but not super friendly looking to bare feet. To help with the sealing of the wood and the odor from the dirt crawl space, what product should we use to prime? I would like to cover the prime with a color (probably a grey) but I don’t know what would be best. Could I get some opinions on the pros and cons of options like Kilz original, zinsser, and any others I may not know about?
Thank you so very much!!
