See, we are still smiling after a week of working together. This home remodeling project was much easier than last time when we had a baby and toddler in the house! We put them to work now that they are older!We finished our project!! It was a lot of work, but Mike and I worked side by side and got it done (he worked a lot harder than me!), I even used some of the power tools. The flooring nail gun is a must have tool. It felt pretty good to finish it together and we LOVE the results-no more disgusting carpet. Our aching backs and creaking knees aside, we think another home project will be fine in another 6 years-this was hard work, but we did burn lots of calories!! It's a good thing we had 6 days to accomplish both the living and family room-about 600 square feet of flooring, plus painting/installing/filling/caulking trim. We have 5 boxes of flooring leftover...will the office be next?
Here are pictures:
The room is ready for a new floor. The pet pee had soaked all the way to the subfloor so we had to use a special primer to seal it in (the big white spot). Gross. Naughty dog.
