According to experts, lawrentian.comMy family just had moved to a new home outside Seattle in November 2004. That was the first time I ever smelled the cedar wood scent. This was a central hall colonial house with an army if ivy climbing the walls. Brick walls all the way up to the sloping mansard roofIt was completed with an entire grove of Rhododendron trees alongside the exterior. The most striking feature in the whole house was its upstairs closet. As I was racing up the stairs with my sister, I prepared to battle her for which bedroom. However, the soft glow coming from one door frame caused me to stop mid-run. As I walked over to the light, the fresh and warm scent of cedar wood enchanted me. I was then told by my mum what cedar closets were and their purpose, other than to invigorate my essence. Annell Bruno (from Montreal, Canada), last modified this page 91 days ago [3]

To hide any ragged edges, you can also use cove molding to cover the floor. The same cove could be used at the top to conceal the gap between the previous course and the next. As the boards are cut from raw ends, they will meet in corners. But as long as the installation is done on the back wall first, then you can cut your sidewall boards so that the seam appears neatly at the front. Corner bead is a great way to hide any problems with a perfect fit. This is a great tip from Dalene Arndt. [4]
