flooring day ...

 We woke up bright and early this Saturday morning to enjoy some coffee and slowly wake up. I think we were a little nervous at what may be ahead but we finally dove right in.
You know the hardest part is getting things started and straight, this took some serious time but we got things started off well .
 After living with sub floors for almost a month I can say I will not miss any part of them. We let the kids do a little doodling .
It's tough to have such a dirty surface , things just never feel clean.

We cleared out the table and chairs , refrigerator and even the island. The cabinets were shimmed with scraps of hardwood flooring so that we could install our own flooring under the cabinets as well. This meant there was a lot of hard work involved in getting those floor boards under the cabinets , back breaking work. But we did it , well most of it. We will finish it tomorrow.
We are getting closer to having a stove , all we now need is to complete the install and stain then top coat the floors and then its installation time.

It has been very very messy. 
 Here is the transition into the family room. The family room floor will come later , all I care about now is getting rid of all the sub floor , I have priorities.
So far so good , it looks great so far and it has gone down rather smoothly. Having all the right tools for the job makes such a big difference, it makes everything run much more smoothly.

We have decided to take a break for tonight after working at it for 9 hours, oh my aching back.
We will begin again tomorrow and will get the kitchen done and the hall and hopefully the powder room also. Wish us luck . See you again Monday .
