Homestead Update – Living Room Floor Before and After

I think the photographs will tell this story well enough, though do insert ‘nastiest cat pee stink you can imagine’ into the before pictures to get the full affect. 😉

The first thing on our list was ‘rip out the disgusting red carpet,’ i’m a Pisces after all – red is NOT my color. Then we replaced the windows and the beheomoth coal stove. It’s hard to tell how bad the original windows are – but trust me, they were BAD. The new woodstove is SO much more efficient. You mean you don’t need to burn a cord of wood a NIGHT to stay warm???

And the most fun project of all – laying the new floor! Made easy by our new chop saw and some practice, the shiny new floor has brought new life to the place, as well as a new living room layout. I’m in love with our new HOME which is finally feeling like one!

Wait, can we see that one more time – side by side?

Love it!

Don’t you just love home renovations that make such a huge improvement/difference?
