I'm not sure if our kids will ever be able to come home! At the moment, we would not recommend installing your own floors! I'm sure it will be worth it in the end, but DANG, it's a long and tedious process.
We love the part we finished! The first couple days of the installation were actually fun. I got to use power tools and told Eric how awesome I was about 50 times. Today my euphoria wore off and I'm ready to be done.
After the floors and baseboards are done, look what I get to put back. Grr!
