New Flooring At Long Last

It's remodel time again around these parts!  This time we are having new tile installed on the floor in the family room/dining area, the entryway, hallway and both bathrooms.  The first section to get a facelift is the family room/dining area.  We have wanted to do this for twelve years! 

Here are some before pics of that room, the entry and the hallway.

Ta-ta to the worn carpeting!

Say Goodbye to the ugly 70's era tile!

Sayonara to the sad carpet in the hall!

Day One - the old tile and carpet were removed!  Yippee Skippee...nothing could make me happier right now!  Here are some work-in-progress shots...

Bruce hard at work!

Kenda clearing the debris.  (They found old vinyl tile under the carpet!)

Four-legged Inspector makes an appearance.

Follow-up Inspector!

Day Two - The tile is going down, two solatubes for the family room area, new shower fixtures for master bath, new lighting in bonus room...and, did I mention the new tile is being installed!  So much activity!  I am giddy!

Kenda moving the dining area lighting.

Bruce measuring for the solatube (skylight).

I expect it will take most of next week to finish it all, with the holiday coming up.  I'll post more in the days to come.  Just know we are tickled pink to be finally having this work done.  We can put up with the inconvenience and dust once again, knowing it will all look terrific soon!

  1. Congratulations on undertaking a big job. You are going to love that solatube!!!! I can't wait to see the whole thing done- xo Diana

  2. Oh Pat,
    That is a big job but it is going to look great.
    What were people thinking, those tiles with flowers. My kitchen has similar tile and it is set on a bed of concrete. Somebody younger than me wil have to remove it.
    Wish I chosen more wisely back then.
    Looking forward to seeing the reveal.
    Blessings, Ginger

  3. Wow, what fun! I'm sure you will have a beautiful new floor when it's all done... I can't wait to see it when it's all done. Congratulations!!!
