Right as school was starting, Brian and I took it upon ourselves to do one final project on the house before we got too crazy into the fall. We hired some Lackeys (yes, that was their last name) to remove the popcorn ceiling out of the living room. It was the final room on the main level to have popcorn. Brian said that once the popcorn was down, we could start on the hardwood floor. I didn’t realize it would all happen at the same time, in the whirlwind of school starting, but hey, what’s another project?
We pulled up the carpet prior to the ceiling coming down. Then we pulled up the pad and the subfloor. We had to lay new subfloor and find the flooring.
And got started.
Safety first! (Later this day, Ellie had a fever. A week later, we discovered that she had walking pneumonia. She is such a trouper even when sick!)
I guess I should get a picture of the final product. It looks nice, and I’m glad to have one more room of hardwood. The room is arranged differently, with the piano and TV switching spots. We still need to rotate the piano a bit to allow for a little more room by the recliner, but it certainly works for us now.
