New flooring!! Hizzah!!

Oh happy day!! At long last we got rid of our icky carpet in our family room. It has been a long time coming. It's not something that we could really afford to do, but it was something that we really needed to do. I am not going to go into specifics, but 3 kids, 8 pets over the years , lots of traffic. You do the math. It was time.
Rockstar did it all himself. He pulled up the carpet and padding. Then we had to pull out 10,000 tiny nails and staples.

Then he carefully started cutting and laying out the flooring. It all snapped together like a puzzle. It really is pretty cool.

Then, before you know it, 6 hours later, we have a complete room done. It looks so much better. It just makes the room seem bigger.

We are still getting used to the echo of the room still. Without carpet there to absorb the sheer volume of our family it is a little deafening. But a throw run will help.

But yeah. I think it looks nice and does wonders for the room.
