Over halfway laid --

Day 1 of the floor installation -- they got over half the floor down. Yay!  

It was a long day, from 9AM to after 6 PM.  I  was supervising from behind the bedroom door, me and Buttercup.  They were very efficient, very focused, very skilled at what they did.

So I took a few pictures:



They were really fast about pulling up the carpeting -- it was gone in no time, at least in the part that wasn't underneath furniture that had to be moved from here to there.

Early on, they had some of the floor laid, and I was so excited!

 
And by the end of the day, they had more than half of it laid:


Terrible cell phone picture, but the dining room (from which I'm taking the picture) is done, as is most of the living room -- yippee!

They said it will be a whole day tomorrow, but once they're finished cutting and placing the  floor boards, it will be more quiet!  The job will require a lot of finishing, so that will be the rest of it, but I'm sure that part will be less stressful on the ears! 

I think it's turning out beautifully, and I'll be so happy when it's done!

Well thank you! That puts me *this close* to 100! They are actually an "outside" rather than "inside" crew, sent by the company I bought the laminate from, but they are wonderful. They cleaned up absolutely everything before they left today. My husband and I said how impossible it would have been for us to do, even when we were young and vigorous --

You will love it! The mess and inconvenience is worth it. Love the color and the wide planks.

Oh re-decorating is a pain the ..., but so worth it when it is done. I need new carpeting in my living room, dining room and stairs, but the thought of the preparation just stops me dead in my tracks. Can hardly wait to see the end result!!
