In Renovations

Laminate Done!

It took a bit longer than Aubrey thought, but once he got the hang of it, he was Mr. Speedy. The instructions for the floor tell you to build the lengh of the floor all and one piece and then click it into place.

The pocket door to the bathroom still has to be installed, and the bathroom will eventually convert from a storage room (as you can see above in the picture) to a beautiful bathroom. (See post below for tiles we picked)

Our goal was 6 months, and it’s exciting that we’re actuall ahead of schedule. 🙂

    That is looking fantastic! I am totally jealous. My basement has commercial carpet and weird stucco walls. Yours looks so light and open.
