Before and After: 250 Feet Into Oblivion

July 10, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

My wife and I had been talking about getting new floors for the downstairs area for years.  Literally, years.  We are finally going to replace the cheap 5-year carpet in our townhouse after living in it for a little over six years.  I call it 5-year carpet because that's about how long the installed carpet lasted before we deemed it disgusting-looking and unfit for use.  

Incidentally, if you live in the Columbia River Gorge, and you're looking to replace your floors, I'd give Swell City Carpet a look.  Their service is amazing, offer much more than just carpeting, and are very reasonably priced.

So that was the truly before, on Friday evening.  As of Sunday July 7, the living room looked like this:

Note: Nico is staring at the place where the couch previously was -- he probably misses his couch.

 

Here he is with pleading eyes wondering when his couch will be back.

Monday, work began on removing the carpet, and the plywood subfloor from the living room area.  Hardiback was laid and screwed down before the tile was put in place.

Tuesday:  Tiles have been put into place!
