It has been a very busy week and boy am I glad to be back home! Although I thoroughly crashed into the comfort of my own bed shortly after arriving home, I did manage to delve into some house projects the following evening.
To my surprise, Aaron had done some house projects of his own while I was away. We had bought oak flooring almost two months ago from Costco. It was the snap flooring style that was a steal for $40 for five or six square feet. We originally had gotten it to replace the vinyl flooring in our master bathroom, but realized that wasn’t going to work. The reason is because we plan to expand that tiny little bathroom by taking over a closet in the room behind it, enlarging it by several feet. The only downside is that it will be a while before we tackle such a monstrous undertaking and I refuse to stare at a pack of snap flooring that long.
Aaron decided to go ahead and use it, replacing the carpet behind the downstairs bar.
We both agreed that carpet behind a bar wasn’t such a hot idea. When you have people over for a party, like say the super bowl, this is where we store the coolers, where everyone makes drinks, and where the appetizers are served. It is a magnet for spills and stains, hence replacing it with wood flooring that can be easily wiped clean seemed quite sensible.
It took Aaron maybe 40 minutes to finish the job since there were so few cuts. Very simple indeed!
All that’s left to do is to lay down a threshold. Unfortunately, with our record, that could be a while!
Anyhoo, thanks to everyone for visiting throughout the week. Sorry for the lack of posts! Next week will be a full week of house project recaps and whatever else we manage to get done during all the thunderstorms predicted for the weekend. Have an awesome long weekend/Memorial Day!
