Boxes of laminate wood in dark oak
door frames that had to be sawed and banged out
closets that had to be floored
linear feet of baseboards I painted
feet of carpet tack line that had to be pryed up
(ok, not really, but it really felt like it)
We had to completely drain and clean the aquarium in order to install the floors. In the process, we lost Hoover, our giant sucker fish. Hopefully the kids won't be too upset and will enjoy getting new fish for the tank.
Although it was a lot of hard work and a big undertaking for us, we are so glad we did it. I think I gained a couple pounds during the installation since the only breaks we took were to eat, so I really enjoyed mealtimes! We wore ourselves out. Eric installed some of the baseboards, but we ran out of time so some of them will have to wait. Any advice on how to clean the floors? I'm on the look out for a great dust mop now that the construction work is done. We miss our kids like crazy and can't wait to see them!
