It started out like this:102_0403And like this (obviously this is a different angle):102_0398

And then it looked like this:102_0420And then this:102_04611 Then this: 102_0486

Then this: 102_0552 Then this: 102_0578

Then this: 102_0599 This: 102_0617

This: 102_0815 This:102_0821

And now this: 102_08871 Yay!!!!

The exterior is not done.  Before: (notice the darness of the existing wood siding) 102_0399

Currently:102_0658 (notice the not darkness of the new wood siding.) 102_0659

And there is more work that needs to be done inside too: kitchen-fixes

But as of right now, I’m done.

And I’m calling it a win.

    Looks great, you are amazing.

    My kids would really enjoy “sock skating” on that floor.

    Where’s the sink? Where’s the stove? I think we need more pictures.

    But it’s still very impressive. Even if you can’t cook anything, or wash dishes. I always did say functionality was way overrated.

    (Seriously – it looks fab!)

    I TOLD you people would love the floors. I think it all looks amazing and you are amazing because you did it. My favorite thing though is still your chandelier. Watch out, because I may come steal it!

    Awesome! I love it. The floors, oh can I pause and take a breath? The floors! I love the floor! I could marry that floor!

    Will you do all of us that are attempting the same thing, albeit a bit slower, and show how you finish the floor when it gets close to the wall. There’s always a gap and it has been the bane of my existence. I hate calling a pro if I can do it myself!

    Thank you Alison for the tour!

    It looks great. (Ours is done too. I am not even thinking about putting the wood floor in the living room. It may never get done.)
