It's a long one. I'm tagging Rae, Kimberly, Yolanda, Jenn Y. and anyone else that is lurking around.



I can hardly walk, that's the price I pay for being a squatter and not a kneeler. I can squat for hours, but I can't kneel to save my life. Anyway, the hardwood, not laminate, is fully installed. (I'm clarifying because we have had numerous people say "oh, you mean laminate" when we say we are installing hardwood) It's wood, real honest to goodness, scratches easily, is hard to cut, harder to install WOOD.
I can not say it's my favourite flooring. I know dogs scratch it, dirt scratches it, people scratch it but I didn't know breathing on it would scratch it. Seriously, if you have the money to get good hardwood, you probably have the money to get really, really good laminate or tile, and that's what I would do.
I know it's better than the carpet and that it's continuous throught the house, and that's what makes me happy it. It only helps a little to forget the 40 hours it took to install it. We had a formula, for every 2 boards we put in, 1 would have to come out. Yesterday, it took us 1 hour to get 2 rows finished, that's about 8 inches of about 14 feet of flooring. It was so depressing. Today, we were faster, slow, but faster than yesterday.

If you're still reading this...
Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Ugh...manual labor just sucks LOL! I'm like you, I can squat but kneeling down just kills my knees. I think the aging and marking of hardwood is more interesting and natural looking than laminate and wish we had it instead of laminate...plus we went too light a color and with 2 dogs...what was I thinking?
