Project #559.....

This is how our floor looked a few weeks ago. 
Our new Great room floor meeting wood looking linoleum & carpet leading to the front door.

We ALL ripped up the linoleum and rolled up the carpet-BUH BYE!

Laid the blue pad stuff.

All littles had to have a hat on and pencil behind ear like The Captain.

Then The Captain cut &
laid the new floor to match our great room floor.

Then he laid another flooring in the entry way.

The ALMOST finished floor.
We still need to add trim, have carpet stretched and paint walls.
Plus remove the 1970's spindles

The view from the front door to the GREAT ROOM!
Much better flow! What do you think??
This post makes it sound so easy-it WAS NOT.
 Thank you God for blessing me with a husband who can figure out ANYTHING!

I will admit, The Captain completing each home improvement project makes me
Time for a cold shower on my large body...

Ha! You crack me up. The floors look great! Your home is beautiful. I love how open it is.

My hubby is NOT handy, I am the handy one but not that handy. My daddy would have to come help me with a project like that.

It looks awesome! Now when Josh runs in with his boots on I won't have to cringe with fear that he got mud on your carpet! LOL :o) It is "da bomb" having a handy-man hubby...Vern has done a large majority of our home-improvement projects. I want to transform our garage entryway closet into a kid-friendly bench seat with hooks for coats, etc., but he keeps putting me off...says it's gonna make a big mess! grrrr...when is home-improvement ever neat and tidy? LOL
