A few weeks ago we decided we were going to put new floors in downstairs. So we searched the stores and decided on a really pretty hardwood and some great carpet. The first step for us in installing the hardwood, ourselves. Okay, this is definitly much harder than I expected. By the time we pulled up the carpet, put in more sub floor, pulled all the staples and trim and laid the underlayment, we were already exhausted! But we kept at it for both Saturday and Sunday and got all the way to the kitchen. We finally stopped at 8:00 that night and collapsed on the couch. I guess it didn't help us much that it was daylight savings time so we lost an hour too. So here are a few before and "not quite" after pictures. We are planning on working on it every night after work and we want to be done by the weekend. More pictures to come within the next few days.
