hardwood redo

Friday, March 25, 2011

We met with our floor re finisher this past Wednesday. He is really nice and definitely knows what he's doing - he gave us straight forward answers on how we were going to re finish 2,200 square feet of red oak hardwood floors. It's going to be a process during this next year or so.

And we start this MONDAY!

I can't believe the first step of re doing our floors will be complete next week. :) He will be doing our new bedroom and our dining room. I can't wait! I figured it would take a few weeks to get in his schedule, and he said it would be done by Wednesday. That means we can start on our trim next week and pretty much move in, with the exception of the 2 built ins and new windows.

One of the biggest blessings, is that we don't have to be out of the house at all. We were really worried about that. It would of made the cost a lot higher if you add a pet friendly hotel in to the works.

Here are some before shots of what this guy has to fix and make beautiful: 

This is in the new bedroom. The lines on the right are where the wall was that we took down. Beautifully centered in this photo is a very large stain that I would be okay with never seeing again.

This is in the new closet. These grooves are where the old closet walls were (yes, we are totally upgrading the closet!) Luckily, we have extra flooring from the new bathroom that we are tearing out, so the floor guy will be putting that in to fill these spaces for no extra charge!  
I'm so ready for some after shots!! I guess I just have to wait......
