Because it was.
Didn't sleep much.
Covered in sawdust most of the time.
But things are looking really GREAT!!
Instead of exhausting you with words, I'll just start adding photos!
Nate started tearing apart and laying the floor before I had a chance/remembered to take a "before" photo of the girls' room. It wasn't anything especially awful—just normal, run-of-the-mill beige carpet with all it's little kid stains.
We worked so hard that my shoes literally fell apart.
Fine, they're old. But they did fall apart while I was working!
Are you exhausted yet? I am just looking at all of these!! Nate and I made a pretty good team laying the flooring. I measured and cut the boards while he nailed them in.
Out of all our projects that we swear we will never do again without hiring someone to do it for us, this one is not among them. The floor looks great and while it was a lot of work, it was sort of fun.
Now we just have to find time to finish them! (and hopefully before a certain someone's birthday party. . . )
