I like how the wood floor runs in different directions on the floor. It makes the hallway feel bigger and definitely more interesting. Your eye doesn't know where to look, which makes the floor gain more attention.
use inexpensive welded wire fabric over rough sawn wood framing to support Hacienda Creeper vines. All this growth took less than one year. It& easy for them to climb the walls unassisted especially after we sandblasted the paint off the masonry block.
