Thanks! I just made the board, all the electric work was done by my BIL.
Painting the floor today. Once all layers are dry and the door attached, we're ready to move in!

That paint takes forever to dry! Still not ready.

It's some synthetic stuff. It's dry on the surface quite soon, but still somewhat soft when you poke it, some parts of it were painted 3 days ago and it's been quite warm in the last couple days. Also, the big bucket I bought should have been enough for the whole floor (according to the writings on the bucket). I'm a little over half and it's all gone. The center part has the oldest paint, as I wanted to move the stove in as soon as possible. Maybe I coule place it there already and fire it up, the heat could help drying the rest of the floor.

I'm no painter. I've had problems with getting oil and latex paint to dry. It's never been the problem with the paint being low quality or poorly mixed, but with this painter not knowing his materials. Generally slow drying is attributed too application when too cold, too humid, or both. The worst is applying another coat or two before the prior coat is fully dry. In that case the paint can remain aggravatingly gooey for several days, but it does eventually dry. Direct sun exposure and dry weather will cure a gooey paint job in a week or so. If that sucker just won't dry you might have to pull off the cover and get the sun on it for a few days. That should take care of it. Good luck.

The painted part was finally dry enough to step on, so we've placed the stove today!
After that, the remaining part got a coat of base paint and the brown paint will follow tomorrow.
Some of the stove pipes got rusty over the winter, but that's no big deal, I'll wipe graphite powder on them later.

Door hinges are finished. We may hang the door today, if the paint on the outer frame did dry already.

I did. Forged the parts couple weeks ago, but finely fitted and riveted them together yesterday. Now I need to make the lock and such...
