Well, I'm tired and don't have a lot of time to post, but I've had lots of requests to see the work thus far.. so here you go. Here's what working 7 nights after work will get ya. GOD I really want a REAL weekend!
I've now got the hardwood through the living room and almost through the dining room. I had to stop until I get that wall finished, because I dont' want the paint and chemicals to drip on to the new floor while I"m painting.
We've just setup the furniture in a hodge-podge for fun. It's SO easy to just push the couch to the whole other side of the room... I love it.
As you can see I've started the baseboard too. I replaced the standard 3" baseboard with 5 1/4" wall base... due to the high wall heights. I think it looks a LOT nicer with the higher trim.
More photos soon.
