We are in the process of installing flooring over the first floor of my house. Spouse and I are installing. A while ago we learned that we don’t work well together, and if we’re working together we have to have one person in charge and one person only doing exactly what he or she is told. I’m much better at taking direction than Spouse. Which is not to say that I’m exactly stellar at taking directions, but I suppose an oak tree is slightly more pliable than a brick wall.
We decided to get some new flooring because our wonderful puppy caused the need in one room (he had some dietary issues),
lucky for you unfortunately for you guys – we don’t have before pictures of the carpet. And it’s also unfortunate I didn’t get pictures of the carpet padding while I was painting, nobody will ever get to see how well the carpet padding went with the blue 3M painting tape.
This is taking longer than we expected. I will give kudos to the folks at iFLOOR. They sell both flooring and installation. The salesman we bought our stuff from comes from an installing background. We were having trouble, we went back to the store, and got a “hands on” demonstration. And I’m sure that it will continue to take a while. But I’m trying to remember the “mommy mantra” this too shall pass and eventually it will be done.
After all, myself, my Spouse, hammers, and power tools is not a really great combination.
I’m looking forward to sending the after pictures.
