Oh my goodness two years in the making and we finally have floors! We went through Home Depot and as much as we loved the guy who did the install of the flooring I would not recommend using them to do your floors. Basically they use a third party for a lot of the ordering process and their is a lot of leg work you have to do to ensure the process is on track and everything is ordered correctly. Here is the floor we ended up selecting from Home Depot:
For those of you who are just following along on our project up here Andy started working on this right when Rory was born so to give you an idea of how far we have come Rory is almost 2 and he has done ALL of the work up here himself other than the flooring and electrical.
Here is some of the furniture that I ordered last weekend during the memorial day sale. Because our doorframe to get to the third floor is the only way to get anything up we had limited options with furniture. The only way I knew having a sectional would work is if it came in different pieces and sections to put together so I did some digging online and Wayfair seemed to have the most options. Here is the couch we ended up getting and yes this is my first time buying a couch online so I was a bit hesitant and also not sure what the outcome would turn out to be. I did a lot of digging through the reviews so I am confident it should be ok. I will let you know when it comes in what we all think.
What is left to do?
- HVAC (Heating and cooling system needs to be installed)
- Triming out certain parts of the ceiling
- Painting the trim & the walls
- Furnishing the space which will take some time and I want to keep it as open and airy as possible
- Putting doors on the storage openings in the walls.
