Home Stuff

Our interviews yesterday went well. The woman writing our home study is nice, and chatty, and it was a good time. We were only able to complete the joint interview, and the individual ones are scheduled next Tuesday. I found it surprisingly easy to talk to her about the infertility. In fact, the only time I even got emotional at all was when we talked about my granny's death.

Here are some flooring photos. Sorry they're not very good. Notice the missing baseboards and green stuff. That green stuff I.HATE. It's underlayment that is required when laying the flooring on a concrete subfloor. It's a moisture barrier + sound barrier. It's thick and a pain to deal with, especially when you poke holes in it accidentally and have to tape it up with the red stuff. HATE.THE.RED.STUFF. You also have to tape the seams with the red stuff. If I ever see green and red stuff again, I will promptly scream.

Here is the living room. I don't like my new rug, by the way. *sigh*
Love the crack in the wall too, right? We seriously need to fix that.



Hallways:




Please ignore the mess in the "nursery", and the orange chair which will be gone very soon. VERY soon.

The floors look great. Did your froggy friend make an appearance to tell the lady what a great pet he'll make? LOL

I think there is a certain charm in the orange chair. Your floors look great and I'm glad your interview went well.

I think you did a great job! DIY is so impressive - I wouldn't have even tried!

Nicole said...

Very nice! I'll trade you my carpet for your floor.

You've been saying that about the orange chair for a while...and I agree with Heidi...it has charm...

The floors look awesome! I love the color of the wood--it's sooo warm! I think you need a funkier rug with like earth tones and geometric patterns to bring out the wood and the dark cabinet and the wall color. They have some cool ones at Target!

The floors are beautiful! I hope you love them. I actually think the orange chair is kind of cool :)

Glad to hear the interview went well.

Bethany said...

Um, we have a pink chair that matches your orange chair. Perhaps they could team up and make a pair? I wish someone would come and take mine away...

Very fine floors btw. You put them in yourselves? You're so brave.
