Laundry, cooking, and cleaning; not today!

This is day two on the work, of our new floors! Our house is such a mess; much more than when the painters were here. ALL of our kitchen appliances and decor are in our family room; dining table and chairs, stove, and our refrigerator. At least the refrigerator is still plugged in! Our garage is still filled with stuff and now our washer and dryer (no laundry, cooking, or cleaning for me!).  I don't know about you, but I don't feel completely comfortable leaving the house all day, with other people in my house. One of the reasons is the garage door is open (its easier for them to carry all the materials in the house that way) and our garage is filled with so much of our furniture and things! I just don't want anybody to walk by and see a nice full garage; ya know?! 

The demo in the dining room/eat in kitchen. Apparently there were three different floors. 
This is our bathroom. Edwin needed a jacket at Kai's baseball game (it was chilly and raining!). We couldn't get to our closets. 
Can I get you a drink?
Tonight we're going to have a nice family dinner, around the dining room table. 
Kade's trying to figure out how to get a snack. (they pulled everything away from the wall, so the furniture looks even more cramped) 

Today they're going to finish laying the tile in here, and put the grout in. 
At least my bedroom is back together, and my bed is made! 
I can't wait for everything to be done! I think they're starting the wood in the family room on Saturday.  I have a bad feeling, we're all going to be confined to our master bedroom tomorrow! The kids won't be able to get to their rooms since the floor is being laid all down the hall by their bedrooms. This will be interesting (as if this process hasn't already been interesting enough!)

Stay tuned for more pictures and finished rooms! 


  1. Oh, Wow! The tile is very pretty. How exciting to see results. Hang in there!

  2. I just want to be done.... ~sigh~

  3. Can't wait to see it all together! It is coming along great!

  4. Those floors look like they are going to be beautiful! I love the big square tiles.

    BTW - I 8 Tagged you! (see my blog for details)

  5. Everything is looking so'll all be worth it when it's finished! Ask Edwin about our remodeling projects......I think it took us ???? years to complete out bathroom! I would say I'm just such a patient person, but really.....we're just slow. We are big do it yourselfers.....but I think it'd be great to just "git her done!" Can't wait to see the floors and all your other great ideas.

  6. I am LOVING these pictures!!!!!! It makes me feel like I'm not the only one who is living in a disaster zone! I think this is the first time I have sat down all day. Craziness!

  7. What an amazing table!! Check out this one too for Square Dining Room Tables. .
