Out of the Loop

Ever since we started the project involving the installation of wood flooring in two rooms (and the master closets, yeah!) I feel like I've lost touch with The Land of Blog.  I think it's actually only been a few days since I sat down and read some posts by my favorite bloggers, I even shared a few times last week, but it seems like longer ago to me for some reason.  I think it's because we've come so far since last Friday that I feel like it's been a much longer time frame.  I'm caught up in a project whirlwind and I'm swirling and twirling.  So here's an update on the progress and a few pics.

All the furniture (and electronics) have been removed and placed anywhere we could make it fit.

The carpet, pad and tack strip have all been removed and hauled away

The baseboards have been removed

The concrete has been vacuumed and vacuumed some more - yuck!

The wood has been picked up and is in the house "acclimating"

The master bedroom has been painted

We're camping out - which, in this case, means our mattress is on the floor smile  Low lighting makes everything look lovely, doesn't it? Well maybe not wrinkly sheets, but that 100% cotton for ya.

The wood is even more beautiful than the sample! I'm so excited!  It's going to be awesome!

The installers are scheduled to arrive next week

We bought a nifty new compresser with two nailer guns (we always buy new tools for DIY projects, am I allowed to call SuperDave's tools "nifty" or is that a girly term?)

You can not even imagine how hard my husband has worked on this project already and we're not done yet!  Times like these are exactly why I call him SuperDave.  I did some of the work too, maybe 20%?  More if you count all the decision making.  I still have to decide on rugs.

Now I am asking myself these questions -  
Traditional or Transitional?  
Wool, nylon or polypropylene? 
Light or Dark?
Plush or Shaggy?

So much to choose from! But the wood decision turned out great and I'm sure the rugs will be awesome too.

And NOW for no particular reason -

Here's a picture of my grand dog, Willie, isn't he cute?

And here's my girls showing their baby bumps a few weeks ago!

They didn't know this picture of them was going world wide.

Love & Laughter,

New floors and new babies all in one year! Lucky you. The flooring you chose is gorgeous! Oops, so are the mommies to be.

Yes, Maureen, it's an exciting year around our house. I told my husband that I had to pick a rug for the living room that was soft and good for babies to sit on and play. He laughed a little - but I was serious.

Laura, I love the look of your new floors. I bet you are anxious to get them installed and everything put back together. Thanks for joining the Open House party.
