A few weeks ago we reached a milestone event in our 2+ year remodel of the bedroom, bathroom, closets, family room, and hallways. NEW CARPET!! The old aqua carpet in the bedroom was gross but we lived with it while we built the new closest and remodeled the bathroom. With all of the major (and dirty) renovation work complete we finally ripped out all of the old carpet in the bedroom and upstairs hallway.
Removing the old carpet exposed the hardwood floors and before you all gasp in horror that we covered them back up with carpet the floors really weren't in good condition closeup.
It didn't take us as long as we thought it would to remove the carpet and all of the old staples. We spent the night on the air mattress in the living room since our bed was temporarily stored in the office.
The next day two workers came and installed all of the new carpet in about 2 hours. It was wonderful. I may or may not have gone in and laid on the carpet as soon as they left.
We never had carpet in the new closets so this was a nice addition.
We have a different plan for a runner on the steps so the carpet stops at the top of the first step. Andy was concerned about how it would look because of all of the repairs and trim work he had to do but we are very pleased with the result. As soon as we find time to finish the steps the Phase 1 Renovation will be DONE!!
It's come a long way since this!
