Our Barnwood Floors
Way down in much earlier posted pictures (Halloween time) I mentioned Rob was remodeling our downstairs floors. He actually ripped down an old barn, and ripped out our downstairs (14 weeks without furniture). Through a trial and error, grueling experience (we are stilled married) the floors are in. They look fantastic. I love the wide planks. I love the chocolate color. Of course. It has transformed our downstairs and it looks a zillion times better than white carpet with 4 kids. Now we are in the midst of painting Crew's bedroom. Then we are putting tile in the kitchen, then Robs building bunk beds, and then end tables, and a then the wood up the stairs, and well I think you get the point. The floors look great, and we love our house, projects and all.
P.S-After renting houses and apts for the first 9.5 years of marriage my opinion of owning a home is that it is slighty over-rated. I have fond memories of calling the landlord for things like, "hey our hot water heater is not working", and "hey our garage door opener is broken", and "will you pay for the grass seed to replant the backyard?" etc. etc. etc.
