When I was in Portland my husband started a house project. Unbeknown to me, as I was flying north, he was working at home tackling a project we had talked about since we moved in. When I landed, he sent me a picture of what he had been up to.
Scraping the dreaded popcorn ceiling! (and sanding, and spackling, and priming, and painting) It baffles me why this stuff was so popular. It especially stings knowing this horrible substance was not original to our house.
So, what do you do when you have dirty fiber particles all over your carpet???
You rip it up, of course!
Surprise discovery...these linoleum tiles underneath the carpet. They basically look like barf.
So now that you have bare, ridiculously dusty and dirty concrete floors, one must take immediate action.
So for the past few days a crew of skilled laborers (aka Peter.Dave.Jake)have been busy doing this...
And here is the result!
I LOVE it. The new flooring runs through the entry, to our front room, to the family room, and the kitchen. This was something we wanted to do since we moved in and fittingly, we tackled this project on our first anniversary of living here. I am sooo thankful for the guys hard work. Seriously, they were great and took their jobs very seriously.
I cant wait to install the baseboards for a totally finished look!
Just for a reference...here are a couple pics from when we first looked at the house.
