Polyurethane or Now My House Stinks

Today, we got started on the shop floor. First, we got everything out of the front room. Well, almost everything. I left the display case in there. It is heavier than it has any business being and I refuse to move it. I also left the big tall set of cubes in there. I just covered it with a sheet to protect the yarn from the dust.
Here's everything else in the livingroom. I'm very pleased that I can still get to the computer and my chair. The big challenge is not to stub my toe on any of this stuff when I'm stumbling to the bathroom at 2am.
Here's the first coat on the floor. I love how shiny and beautiful my old floor can get. The only drawback is the stench. I'm trying an experiment. I've got the windows closed in the shop (except for one I left cracked) and I'm running the air conditioner on "Dry". I think this means that it doesn't cool the room as much as dehumidify it. I'm worried if I just open all the windows, it will never get dry. We'll see how it works.
Don't worry. I've got the shop closed off and a lot of windows open in the rest of the house. Still stinks, though.
