Finally the floor is finished! least the first floor: 2 more levels to go! Don't worry about the black patch in the middle; that's where the staircase goes. The interior has a checkerboard pattern of oak and mahogany. The porch is done in dark wood planks.

One tip: instead of using real wood veneers, I used wood textured Con-Tact paper. That was considerably cheaper and lighter than wood, easier to cut and fit into tricky corners. Finally, the floor received a thick coat of Krylon Triple Thick Crystal Clear Glaze. That gave the floor a rich and glassy finish, and I can rest assured that the contact paper will not peel off.
