Listening to this, as I sat with my knitting in one of the four kitchen chairs, which, by the way, were now in our bedroom, I wondered how any sort of order could be restored by what seemed to me to be sheer and utter chaos.
Within in a surprisingly short amount of time, though, the old floor was up
By the end of the day three quarters of the new floor had been installed.
|Old Floor / New Floor|
The four men who were doing the job were young, probably in their 20’s. The one who answered to “the boss” spoke English, but with a definite accent. I tried to identify the language that he was communicating in to the others. “Portuguese,” he answered when we asked. He told us that they were from Brazil.
I must say they worked hard, only stopping once for a short lunch break.
They came back the next day and were completely finished by 3:00.
I love our new floor.
Now onto the next project. We are getting new carpet installed in our bedroom. We are also getting the bedroom and master bath painted.
Today I spent the day emptying out our closets.
|The plastic bins hold all of my yarn stash. Sinful!|
I can’t believe that all of this fit in my closet. Ross and Rico can’t believe it either.
I hope this goes as smoothly as the floor did.
