Things are coming along * Updated*

I'm so excited!  As we speak, Keith is working on the floor in Rowan's new room.  We managed to get some laminate flooring yesterday, despite a freaky storm that ripped through town.  The short version of the story is:
We just walked out the door of Rona, heading to the car, when suddenly we were almost blown away by this crazy wind, which instantly turned to pouring rain!!  Rowan and I got in the car, while Keith ran back inside with the cart.  (there was no time to load it all up).  Then I noticed that the front windows of the car were about 2 inches down!  We got rain and hail in the car.  When we finally got the stuff loaded up, and headed home, we had to shower because that wind/rain had blown us full of gravel and dirt.

So, we had an adventure!  I can hardly wait for tomorrow... hopefully we can move Rowan into his new room.  And then it's time to tackle the baby room... oh help!  (We're not renovating that room, it just needs to be cleaned out, and organized, so I can see what I need to buy before this baby comes!!

Here's the progress:  I'll add more pictures as the work gets done!!

The first few rows are done!!

And a few more rows!!

Had to take the door off and cut it a bit shorter!!

All done!  (there's some weird spots on this pic)

Now for the baseboards... and curtains!

do you have all hardwood floors? the house we may move into if we get the job is ALL hardwood except one room.How do you keep it clean?

I love the dark wood look! And you're right - that was one crazy storm yesterday!

Mom said...

Hey...great job Keith! Love it!!! So glad you could get that done before baby comes :)

Gina said...

I love the laminate, the color is amazing. Do you have laminate anywhere else in the house? It's so much easier to keep clean than rug.

Donna said...

Isn't it nice to have a husband who is handy??

I love the floor color with the walls!!

Michelle said...

The room looks GREAT! I also love the darker color of the floor. Can't wait to see the finished product:)
Love you all!

Andrea said...

Looks awesome!! yep, I love laminate flooring! :) Is Rowan in his new BLUE room yet?! :)

Lindsey Dueck said...

That room looks amazing! I love the dark flooring, very nice. Can't wait to see it finished.

We have laminate in Rowan's old room (the baby room). We really like it. The rest of the house is old linoleum, except for our living room, which is nasty old carpet!

For sure!! Keith has been willing to do so much in our house since we bought it. He's a natural at figuring things out too, even if he hasn't done it before.

We will hopefully get the baseboards in tonight (Keith has had to work a lot of crazy hours the past few days, so it's taking longer than we hoped), and then Rowan will get to at least sleep in his new room tonight!
