Cutting a Rug

One thing that can be crossed off of our to-do list is ripping up the carpet in the old dining and living room. Adam was here all day Saturday working and took care of these rooms. We've got a dumpster coming tomorrow so we can get rid off all the carpet in the corner.

It's amazing how much homey-er it feels by just exposing the hardwoods in the living room pictured above and below. We need to pull out the nails and refinish by sanding and putting on a clear coat of poly.

I can't wait to lay a big rug down and haul in the furniture soon!

(Speaking of timelines, we've been asked when the big move-in date is and the answer to that is we don't know. Hopefully, by early September is what we're thinking. The hardest and longest part of this renovation was going to be the foundation. Now that that is finished, we can keep cruising along and be in sooner than later!)

(Speaking of foundation, it's done! You can walk down the hallway and not have to feel the big dip in the middle anymore. I'm sure it's never going to be suitable for a game of marbles, but it's good enough for us.)
