It has been a couple of weeks since I spontaneously ripped out our guest room carpet. I am crazy for a fun time.
Henry and I picked out the new floor at HD and paid for it, because Oscar can't drive and doesn't have a job yet, but the little dude has finally started to contribute.
First he laid the moisture barrier.
Lots and lots of measuring. You know that this would not be a good job for Mrs. Lovely.
Henry chipped in on occasion to help operate the chop saw.
Measure twice, cut once.
After loads of research and keeping our tight budget in mind we bought a click together laminate floor for .99/ square foot. Please do not fire bomb our house for covering up the hardwood. It would have cost a load of money to get the floors refinished or loads of time and money to redo them ourselves. I was having horrible flashbacks of our roofing project; the day we took on too much. We feel great about our 180.00 decision and we love the hardwood in the rest of the house. That is all I am going to say about it (well, that is probably a lie, but for now, that's all I am going to say about it).
There is just a little left to do before the finishing touches. Ooh, so close.
