Other than Thanksgiving, our vacation was spent slaving over laminate flooring. Yes, I am so glad we are finally getting this done, but holy crap! This is a lot of work. It's the measuring and cutting and figuring out how the hell you will work with certain corners and door jambs that take so much time. We started Sunday afternoon and worked almost non-stop until Tuesday, and then continued again after our guests left Friday morning. We are still not finished--only the kids' bedrooms remain. Then we will do the molding sometime next month, and eventually get rid of the horrible acoustic tile ceiling (who thought that was ever a good idea in any place other than an office building?!). Whatever it takes to raise the property value, we'll do it.
I am so glad we have all of that nasty carpet out of the house. I don't understand why anyone would want wall-to-wall carpeting. It is such an allergen. Now that it's out of here, I don't wake up in the morning with puffy, irritated eyes. I also don't doubt that Hannah's eczema and asthma will improve a bit too. It feels cleaner in here and it just looks 100x better. I love the floors!
I'll leave you with a before and after photo of the kitchen. More will follow shortly!
Goodbye nasty linoleum!
