I ripped up the living room carpet last week and we started installing a hardwood Brazilian cherry floor yesterday. It required getting up and down all day long and I am sore and tired. I'm sure Lois feels just as bad as I do.
Everything is now packed into our kitchen and it looks like a giant mess. The animals of course are freaked out. We are hoping to minimize the dander problem we have and make things easier with the cleaning. But then, we have the kids so I'm not so sure how that's going to work out. You would think there was a win-win in there somewhere, but I just feel sticky stuff on the bottoms of my feet.
This stuff is pretty easy to work with provided you have the proper tools. Unfortunately my table saw is little small and using the guides is kind of hard because the wood is too wide and it is even harder doing the angles. Did I tell you there were 127 angles? The bay window, the stairway and the entry way to the kitchen all have different angles. Not easy ones like 45 degrees, but more like 41 and 67 degrees. What's up with that home builder? There is also a pantry closet and I predict a couple days inside of there. There are only 4 boxes left and the plan is to finish today. If I have time I'll post a picture.

We're going to need some paint here. And some half inch molding. And a little stain. And a new back.
