Day 52

The floor is laid.

It went on into the night but I was successful.  I had heard that the lime would burn if it got on your skin so I took precautions but still managed to get some inside my glove and damn!  it burns. It actually burrows into your skin. My girlfriend put some baking soda on the burn to neutralize it but after noticing more pain and my burns getting worse we realized it was an alkaline and needed an acid to neutralize it.  Amateurs.

I also dug under the house where the moisture was leeching in and filled that with lime as well.  That should really create a barrier from the rain. It will take a week or so before we can walk on the floor but just in time for Christmas!
