I was excited today..... My Dad, Uncle Andrew and I started installing the bamboo in the great room, beginning with the inlay planks for the hearth. I think we all had taken turns using expletives during fitting and cutting the angles for the inlay planks around the hearth. They had to be cut at exactly the right angles or else they produced ugly gaps. It worked out though.... and it looks fantastic. My Dad said, at one point, that it gives a richness to the room now..... like something you'd see in a rich house.
