We were up early last Monday morning and I barely had time to get breakfast cleared off the table before the workers arrived. I kid you not, within an hour the four guys had the big pieces of furniture moved and the floors looked like this:
And by lunchtime the floor in the entry was laid. Oh it was pretty!
After lunch, the guys returned (45 minutes was all the break they took), and began laying carpet and spreading glue on the kitchen floor. Honestly the aroma was not that bad. I'd sort of dreaded that part of the job thinking the house would smell just awful. It didn't. By 3pm this is how the kitchen looked:
The crew came together and set all the furniture in place in the bedroom. These guys encouraged me to rearrange to my heart's content. I tried to be decisive and didn't take advantage of their labor too much. By 4pm, I had the bedroom together enough to take a photo of it:
The guys put quarter round down in the kitchen while I was making up the bedroom. They worked so efficiently! By 4:30pm they had tools neatly stacked on the porches, appliances back in place and were packed up ready to go home. John and I were left to gaze at the gorgeous floors...
And looked forward to the great room's transformation the next day.
