(I must admit, that Shantel took several of these pictures.) Troy and I ripping up that dang carpet. It was very hard and You should have seen the blisters we grew because it! :)
Miss Toughy thought she could do it all by herself..... turns out it was a bit harder than she thought!
Course Scott had to get in on the action!
Everyone helped in this project. Fighting over the various scraping utensils. Ice scrapers,
and even putty knives-- which work really well for removing that stubborn glued over linoleum.
Finally this past weekend, we got to work on the re-flooring.
Looks nice, yes?! 13 boxes to go.
First off get the edging down.........
Boy these beginning rows took FOREVER, how many more do we have left?
Measure cut, fit, measure again.... cut again and finally it fits! :)
Progress! it's nearly 5 PM and we still have SO much left! We finished the dining area and left the last bit for Monday.
Success! By 3 Monday afternoon we were finally done! The kitchen
the dining room!
Course every muscle in my body was so sore I could hardly move..... I was not alone in the pain department, Troy and his dad were dead, their poor knees!
