The light at the end of the tunnel...

As some of you know, our major project this summer was removing 30 year old carpet and linoleum and replacing it with new laminate flooring--about 800 square feet of it. Int he process, we also decided to remove and replace all of the baseboards as well. Then, we decided to also rip out and replace the old (non up to code) banister and replace it with a half wall! All by ourselves and all in 2 months! It has been a LOT of work and we are tired!

Well, today we actually accomplished something! We have the family room done! Floors! Painting! Baseboards! Room put back together!

Here are a few pictures. Of course, it doesn't look like much from the pictures, but let me tell you--it was a lot of work! We have a lot of sweat equity in this house in just 1 years' time! We love it and are highly motivated to get the rest done!
