  1. Ah, home improvement projects never end but the results of each step are so fun aren’t they? We are in the midst of replacing nasty old carpet with hardwood lamenant and it is just so awesome to watch our house shape up and take on our personality. Have fun! Thanks for sharing your results.

Cleaning everythig out of our main living space really stinks! I will be pulling out nasty porch carpet later this evening. Wheeeee!
