New Flooring

Have you ever planned on a weekend project and it ended up taking a couple weeks? That is what seems to always happen to us. Part of our living room floor had begun to dip in the middle, with
our house being older we were so afraid of some sort of structural damage. So we had to tear up a large portion of our floor to check it out. I am so thankful that we couldn't find one bit of structural damage. Underneath the living room floor is my hair salon, I kept telling Ronnie to be careful and not go through the ceiling tile. He did fine, but guess who went through the ceiling, me. But thank goodness I was fine, I just bruised my legs a little and had a few scrapes, and I caught on some rafters, so I didn't go all of the way through.
  We reinforced the floor with more boards and leveled it out. Then we applied laminate flooring over top. So far I am so proud of it and like it. It had good reviews and Bo my doggy's toenails doesn't seem to scratch the flooring. So here is a few pictures of our flooring project. All of our hardwork was worth it.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
