Happy New Year! I've been off-blog for the past few days doing the typical new year stuff. You know, cleaning up and storing Christmas stuff, organizing, playing with little people who are all home from school until Monday. As cliche as it sounds, I am determined to get this house into some improved organizational condition. It's been a rough 2.5 years of having babies and endless minor renovations around here. We need to start cleaning up, digging out, and making it look like people actually live here. Its been looking like a team of REALLY slow construction workers have been squatting for 2 years. Not pleasant.
I'm working on pinning down a flooring choice and am leaning toward a medium/dark brown bamboo...pictured below. Feel free to comment, I'm not 100% committed yet.After swearing that I would never let Daniel do this project because of the extreme length of time his projects take to complete...he's starting to wear me down. After reviewing this very helpful website, the thought of paying someone $3+ per square foot to install the floor makes me want to scream. It's not exactly rocket science and we currently own every specialty saw and tool known to man. I'm wavering....WAVERING! None of this is relevant until my mantle and shelves are finished either. This would be at the tail end of that project. Do people really pay $2,000+ for installation of a prefinished hardwood floor? That just seems like madness to me. Maybe I'm just super cheap...entirely possible.
