HARDWOOD FLOORING 101

Today we are busy moving in. It feels unbelievably good to type that. I’m sure many of you can identify with the feeling. But I digress. We are back, as promised, to talk about our floor installation/refinishing process.Β Because we had so many other projects going on at the same time, our process was a little different than most. Plus, not everybody gets to move out completely while they renovate. However, we hope we can shed some light on the experience…

OUR NEW FLOORS… FINALLY

finished floors

The day has come! The happiest day ever — well, at least the happiest day in the last eight months.

BRINGING DISNEY MAGIC HOME

Last week, we scheduled two major projects to be done by a few contractors: tiling the master bathroom and staining the floors throughout the house.Β Since work was being done in the house and we couldn’t be inside while the work was happening, we took a little break from the daily grind of house renovations. Rather than just sitting around twiddling our thumbs and catching up on NCIS, we decided to spend some time with a mouse who wears red shorts.…
