When the patio guys took out our old deck, they found among other things a board directly beneath the sliding door that had started rotting away. We were fine contracting out the gas line but figured we could take care of this project ourselves.
We knew the deck wasn’t going to last very long when we got the house. After patching one hole and other boards starting to rot away beneath us, we knew it was time for a change.
About time! Our “2–3 day” flooring install job is finally finished only 4 weeks later! It was a long and very frustrating process, but it’s a huge improvement. New hardwood flooring is now installed where there was once brick tile, old vinyl, old parquet, and some not-so-bad carpet. It ties the whole first floor together. If you all the details on why we won’t be using Lumber Liquidators nor Apple Renovation Services again. If not, here’s the before and after photos.
It’s been a while so I thought I would write a quick update on the major things going on over here.
We've been so busy with all kinds of other fun stuff, that we haven't had time to finish our write-up on our cabinets. We always try to post real-time updates to Facebook and Twitter, but now we're finally able to post our final before and after photos!
