Today began our adventure with putting new flooring in on our own. We ripped all of the carpet out of the dining and living areas and the hallway leading to the bedrooms. So far, we're pretty proud of ourselves.
I put the star thing over the carpet because it was GROSS. Our puppy, Lily, has had her share of accidents but it wasn't anything compared to what we found underneath so we're assuming the previous owner's dog (which was much larger than ours) had its fair share of accidents as well. After seeing that, we're very glad we're getting rid of the carpet.
The hallway. We left extra carpet in all of the transitional areas (into the bedrooms, etc) so that we didn't realize later that we should have. Better to be safe than sorry.
We're exhausted after half a day's work but we got everything done that we needed to for now. We'll have some friends helping us with the new flooring once they're back in town (BIG thanks in advance Eric and Candace) so it'll be awhile before we have more updates but I'll show you during and after pictures when I can.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
