Our new floors

Well, the floor is coming along. As you may know, we ordered bamboo flooring early in March and tucked it away for a summer project. Well, we are deep into it now...Terry has never laid hardwood before, and therefore this whole project has been a slow and thorough process. Above is our new livingroom/diningroom location for the next couple of weeks. We can still host guests, and feed them at the table (although it will be tight) and anywhere you sit, you will have a footrest (which is quite fun). Terry was quick to empty the room of all furniture and then tear up the carpet and disassemble everything else but actually laying the wood has been delayed. First the weather (soooo humid) and then we got busy. This week, after researching (through people and internet), Terry started the HUGE project of putting down the bamboo! Its beautiful and sturdy and warm. The whole process has been happening slow enough that the pets were not too thrown off by this until the big power hammer thing came out. The cat left home and mollie hid in the laundry room. Its going to be a long week or two for them.


You know those stupid gifts you give your husband/father that you know they will never use? Well, Terry actually got to use the laserlight measure thingy we got him for Xmas a few years ago... yipee.... We have recruited help for the weekend, so our task now is to move all the livingroom/diningroom furniture into the livingroom and tear up the diningroom/hallway before Friday. Very exciting!
